Some Statistics

Mark Twain once said, “There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies and statistics.”  Serenity and I aren’t much for stats anyways, one of our core values is being simple, and statistics seem to try to paint a picture of being big and successful in a worldly sense.  So, all that being said, I thought some of you would like to know how things are going with the number of families coming to the Jubilee Food Pantry.

The Jubilee Food Pantry has served a total of:

89 different families

425 individuals

from 8 different local communities

The number of families coming to get food has also plateaued recently:

July 6 – 26

July 13 – 42

July 20 – 36

July 27 – 39

August 3 – 24

August 10 – 20

August 17 – 28

Overall, it has been a fun summer.  It seems as if folks are feeling more comfortable with us.  Neighbors have stopped by each week and brought vegetables from their gardens to share with others.  Many of our guests have asked if they can volunteer with us as well.

We could still use some help on Tuesdays with set-up (between 3-4pm) and translation and general help during the pantry hours (4-7pm).  If you are interested, call or email Serenity – 503.803.7823 or

  1. Hey P – Sorry that Michael was not able to help out on Tuesday; we got back from vacation and it has been a blur saying good-bye to family and friends for him. I know it just totally slipped both of our minds. So much going on and our thoughts are quite full right now.

    I will let him know to check in with you about next week. Love you – Shelly

  2. Hey, Tuesdays you are on our minds and in our prayers.
