Current Needs

Each week, we attempt, with the Lord’s help, to provide those who attend Sunday School and our worship service with a little food and their five most needed items.  Additionally, we help provide food security for families in poverty through our food cooperative program.  Your gifts are 100% tax deductible.  Jesus Place is recognized by the IRS as a 501 (C) (3) nonprofit organization.

Through Amazon Smile, you can purchase our most needed items and Amazon will ship them directly to our location.  Clicking this link will take you to our Charity List on Amazon.  Be sure to select "Jesus Place Inner City Mission's Gift Registry Address" at checkout.  .
