I donate and like to give even if I have not much. I believe no matter what we are all human and deserve to be treated like one, it hurts my heart for people who have nothing, we don't know their story but that doesn't mean they don't feel. Nobody should go hungry, or cold or homeless.i know what it's like to be without and I have had people do the same for me, we are all equal on this earth we all bleed the same, so I give from my heart because everybody deserves the basics on life and it might not mean much to some but to those it does. I give because that's how it should be togetherness.
Review from #MyGivingStory
In 2009 my world came crashing down. The recession hit and I lost my job, my home and I was living in New Mexico with no family (I'm originally from Ohio) and had barely any friends. My Pastor taught a sermon about giving even when you need the most help. So i intentionally thought what did I have to give in order to be a blessing to someone else. I originally called them because I had a peach tree and before I surrendered my home I want to give all the fruit but unfortunately one day i came home asnd allmy peaches were stolen. At that point of frustration I came up with another plan. I wasn't getting nearly as much unemployment compared to what I was making working but I decided every week out of my unemployment check I would take $20 and bought groceries and dropped them off at Joy Junction. I didn't get generic stuff but i did shop sales so that I could get more. I believe that just because you are in need doesn't mean you cant have the best stuff. I learned that God has still blessed me even though I too was in need so i am blessed enough to help others during this time. When we all fall its our responsibility to lift each other up. I continued to give not asking for a receipt and being anonymous until I moved out of the county. I chose Joy Junction because they weren't just trying to give people food but they care about people's lively They are very active about making sure families aren't on the streets. I love the fact they are Christian based and believe in showing love like Jesus showed for the homeless in His time. I have volunteered at a few places but I love the story behind Joy Junction and this is how I gave back and supported this non-profit agency in away that was meaningful to me. Thank You

I have a family member who has benefited from the services that Joy Junction provides. They are an outstanding asset to our community.
I worked at Joy Junction 9 years ago and know that not only do they serve a need, but they help people improve their circumstances.
