 We have a $500 winner!  

"Jackson Personal Care Ministry"


"Jackson Personal Care Ministry is grateful to be the recipient of this $500 grant from The Jackson Community Foundation. Please be assured that we'll put it to very good use. Our buyers are very skilled -- best-price purchasing of the products we distribute allows us to serve a household for less than $7 per week! Last week, we had 168 guests (168 households) come through the "pantry". Again, thank you. Sincerely, Rev. Karen Kelley, Westminister Presbyterian Church, Jackson".
