WE WERE ABLE TO BRING OUT BOUNCE HOUSE, SNOW CONES, BALLOON ARTIST AND SPONSORED SCHOOL SUPPLIES FOR EACH KID
EACH KIDDO IN THE SHELTER RECEIVED A BACKPACK FULL OF SUPPLIES SPECIFIC TO THEIR SCHOOL
INCREDIBLE TO SEE OUR LITTLES SERVING THE OTHER LITTLES IN THE SHELTER. JUST BEING A KID! SMALL BUT MIGHTY!
We are so grateful for the partnership with Cornerstone Church community group - they collected multiple items including 112 packages of wipes, over 20 toothbrushes, 20 bars of soap, and countless non-perishable items for the food pantry at a local shelter! These friends have truly shown up as the hands and feet of Christ. Each member of this group helped package 100 bags to personally deliver to Sarah's House. During our visit at Sarah's House we got to meet an immediate need to help restock some of the pantry, and provide necessities for women and children as they entered the shelter. Sarah's House is located in Pasadena, TX as a non-profit organization they continually look for financial, volunteer and resource support - please checkout their website for more information about how you can get involved www.sarahshouse.org
Mrs. Starr Cunningham organized this project with her post ladies - she has been an advocate for JATW from day one - we appreciate her!
Jane had the opportunity to share the vision of JATW with the ladies of Post 560. What an honor to have such an amazing group of ladies support JATW efforts!
Mrs. Mundy took the time to speak life into Jane. Such a special moment of encouragement. Truly grateful for your emotional and financial support of JATW!
All of the bags have been delivered to the Veterans Hospital in Houston, TX to resource the homeless veterans that pass through - just a little bit of hope in each bag.
When we received a call the evening of September 1, 2020 about multiple families from Louisiana that were forced to evacuate during Hurricane Laura and ended up in a small motel in La Porte, Texas we knew that JATW had to show up! The next day we went out to visit the families and bring some care package with the essential items, we learned quickly that they needed much more. As it turns out most of these families lived in the same apartment complex and heartbreakingly only have devastation to return to at their complex in Louisiana. With the help of Highpoint Insurance Group in Friendswood, Texas we were able to collect about a weeks worth of food for them to cook in the common area kitchen that the motel was allowing them use. As the community united together we were able to reach our goal and paid for a weeks stay at the motel (FEMA had not processed vouchers for them yet) so that they could get a handle on the next steps of rebuilding their life without having to stress about paying for shelter.
What a blessing it was to meet Chris, the young man in the first picture below - he stepped up as the shepherd of this group, making sure that everyone had food, water, clothes, ensuring no one is left out... he is truly a God given gift. Although Grandmammy (featured in the second picture below) of the group does keep him in line - such sweet people that really just needed a little hope and encouragement.
It was amazing to see people show up and God show off!
JATW delivered 80 rolls of toilet paper to help residents of Sarah's House in Pasadena, TX - an emergency Women and Children's Homeless Shelter
Sarah's House provides food from their pantry to a community in need - Bread was on the top of the list of needs! With partnership JATW provided approx. 30 loaves of bread.
