Juana’s Wreaths

Our good friend Juana Cortes is going to be selling wreaths again this year during the holidays.  We have known Juana for several years through the food pantry.  She has been a blessing to many.  Juana cares for her elderly father full-time who three years ago had a stroke and heart attack.  Selling wreaths during Christmas is one way she is able to stay near her father and earn some money to pay the bills.

This year, Juana has allowed us to help her with her business structure.  Juana is awesome at making wreaths, they really are amazing, but she does not have a computer or internet access.  A group of us are working together to tap into social media and other contacts to increase her sales and productivity.  In return Juana is going to donate a percentage of each sale to the Jubilee Food Pantry.  So by purchasing wreaths, you can not only help Juana, but you can also help others in the community who are in need of food assistance during the holidays.

For more information, see the website we have set up for her:

Community Garden Clean Up Day

Thank you to North Marion Fellowship for helping us clean up the Jubilee Community Garden today. We had a wonderful growing season, but with the leaves dropping along with the temperature, a clean up was in order. Here are some pictures of our clean up.
