During the past twelve months, JOY Closet has been able to honor 636 vouchers from individuals and families. The total amount of the purchases from those vouchers was $18,328.28. October 2017 showed the highest voucher and dollar amounts, with 73 vouchers totaling $2,122.36 in clothing, shoes, and bedding.
What a blessing to be able to pass on the donations from the community and serve those in need while also providing inexpensive items for those who support the closet with their hard-earned dollars.
Moments of JOY:
Recently, a lady brought in a donation to the JOY Closet. She said she didn’t need a tax receipt because she was happy to be giving back. It seems she was someone we had helped when her family was going through difficult times and she wanted to show her appreciation. While this scenario has happened before, it is always a blessing to us. God is at work in our lives and, in the best of times, people share their blessings.
