Jefferson County Community Ministries, Inc. (JCCM) provides county residents with emergency food, clothing and limited financial assistance for utilities, fuel, prescription medications and housing. We believe that through emergency and short-term assistance, those who come to us might then be able to find more permanent solutions to their needs.
Our theme at JCCM is “Neighbors Helping Neighbors.” Our partnership with our churches, local businesses and civic organizations, educational institutions and schools, government agencies, and most important of all, the residents of Jefferson County, have allowed us to provide assistance to neighbors in need.
On Saturday, March 28th, at 10:am in the conference room at Community Ministries (corner of Washington and Lawrence streets in Charles Town) we will have a Volunteer Orientation gathering for all who might be interested in sharing their interests, skills and passions in this ministry to our neighbors in need. You are warmly invited to come, learn more about the many ministry opportunities currently available and still on the drawing-board, and join with the many others who make this a truly remarkable and healing place to be.
The Clothing Closet will be closed for donations and for distributions for the month of April. We will use this time to rotate our inventory from cold weather items to clothing more appropriate for the coming of warmer weather. A lot of work is involved and our dedicated and loyal volunteers will be striving to move many boxes and bags of clothing up from the basement and then back down so we can re-open in May. We thank you for your patience as we prepare for the warm weather season.
