"But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare." Jeremiah 29:7

Jubilee REACH, along with other partners like us want to help provide bags of groceries for families weekly, all of whom are already connected to Jubilee REACH. We aren’t looking to provide 100% of their groceries, but to supplement many of their basic needs, so they can use that money toward other things, like rent, power, phone, etc.
 
Some of the items need to be purchased in bulk and brought to Jubilee REACH, where they will divide them into portion sizes. Would you be willing to help provide a certain quantity of these items each Tuesday.  At that time, Jubilee REACH will reevaluate the situation.

 

The needs continue to be updated and we will work hard to keep this list updated over the next several weeks during this project.

 

 

 

We are now serving 592 families! We continue to be blown away by your generosity and love! Daily we receive lots of amazing items to keep our pantry and hygiene items stocked for each day and families are so thankful. This week we were able to hand out laundry detergent for the second time and all-purpose cleaning spray went out for 2 of the 3 days for the first time and they were so popular. Thank you!

 

Attached is the grocery shopping letter again as well as the donation slip to fill out for your donation records. Here are some awe-inspiring statistics:
