Holiday giving specifics

We have been approached a number of times recently by some folks who would like to help with the holiday season in some way or another.   Praying through this, so that we can direct you to something concrete and helpful, we have come up with some ideas.  These are items that could be handed out the week of Christmas and/or throughout the year to bless all of the families that come to the Jubilee Food Pantry.

  • Turkeys!!!  We would love to hand out a turkey to each family who comes to pantry during the week of Thanksgiving and Christmas.  HOWEVER, we do not have freezer space, so please be ready to deliver them on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving and Christmas.  And please let me know, by e-mail or facebook, if you have a turkey to give.
  • The Jesus Storybook Bible (Spanish/English version)
  • NIV Bible (Spanish/English version)
  • Diapers!  We would also love to hand out a big package of diapers to each family who has children on Christmas.  The most popular sizes are 3, 4, 5 but we will take any size.

As always, we want to extend an invite to all of you to pay us a visit.  We have families come every Tuesday, all year long, who would love to meet you, know your name, and be known themselves.  And this invitation is not just to the Jubilee Food Pantry; there are families, elderly, homeless, orphans, EVERYWHERE.  Jesus came into the world as a helpless baby of a poor family to remind us that every nobody is a SOMEBODY.  Jesus came to be with the nobody’s and asked us to imitate Him.  He then gave us the power to do it, through His Holy Spirit.  So, before you quickly give to the nearest charity (which is not bad), stop and ask Him what He wants of you.  “With God, all things are possible.” Matthew 19:26

Thank you and may you be blessed by His amazing Grace this holiday season.
