Thank you for all of your help this year. Look what we have been able to do in December alone:
- Over 340 children came to the Christmas Party and received gifts
- 30 children were warmed up with much needed coats
- 45 kids were tutored just this week alone
- Hundreds of healthy snacks and hundreds of take home sandwiches have been served
We are just a few days away from Christmas. The last thing on our holiday to-do list is food boxes for struggling families. Knowing people have food brings me such comfort and joy when I am celebrating with my family and friends. This year we have 30 families on our at-risk list. If you want to help feed a family it costs $45.00, but any amount is appreciated. The box will include a card with your name, wishing the family a Happy Holiday.
All of us here at JPM are so grateful to you. You have helped us change the lives of so many people. We pray that you have a delightful holiday season with your family and friends.
Many blessings and Merry Christmas from Jesus Project Ministries,
Sarah, Rachel, Alexander, Ivory and Debra
Thanks so much to all who partnered with us on Giving Tuesday. You made such a difference! We raised $12,080 which is 67% of our goal. We are hopeful that Facebook will match some of the donations, which will bring us closer to our target of $18,000.
In a few hours, our team will be headed out to buy Christmas presents for over 350 children. The budget for each child is $20. It is only because of you that we can put smiles like these on children’s faces. Along with the gifts, everyone who comes to the Christmas Party and Toy Give-Away enjoys food, crafts, and some good ole fashioned Christmas cheer. If you are nearby on December 14th, please come join the fun!
In addition to the Christmas party and gifts, a portion of the money raised on Tuesday will provide for a subscriptions to the Lexia Core 5 reading program. Each students subscription costs $25 annually. This is a nationally recognized reading enhancement program. We see tremendous improvement in children’s reading skills when they use this program. Thank you so much for helping improve children s reading skills.
We will let you know if we received any matching dollars. According to Facebook, we will be notified in January.
Even though Giving Tuesday is officially finished, your contribution to the lives of the children in Hollygrove will continue.
Rachel, Sarah, Alexander, Ivory and the rest of our team are so grateful for all that you do throughout the year, we just want to say thanks again.
