JOY Ministries nears fundraising goal

By Hannah Peck

In just two weeks the Columbia-Adair County Community has donated $27,000 to the J.O.Y. Ministries Annual Christmas Campaign! "I am shock, stunned, and awe-struck - but I shouldn't be," says Board Member Krystal Cundiff. "God works through this community and we just continued to be so humbled by his goodness!"

The 2021 J.O.Y. Ministries Christmas Campaign will be J.O.Y.'s largest to date, with a fundraising goal of $35,000. In the summer of 2021 JOY purchased Ruth's Place, a women & children's shelter slated to open in the new year. The anticipated expenses of operating a multi-unit shelter, continued operation of Cally's House, and meeting the ever-growing needs of the Adair County community are cause for this ambitious goal.

If you would like to support J.O.Y. this holiday season, you can donate today at:

The JOY Crisis Resource Center is located at 411 Greensburg Street and is open Monday through Friday from 11amCT to 5pmCT.
