Arlington church begins food/clothing bank, seeks donations

Jake’s House Prayer and Worship Center began running a food bank to help those in need this December.

 


An Arlington church, Jake’s House Prayer and Worship Center, is operating a new food and clothing bank that will be available every Friday.

The food bank opened on Dec. 13 and will continue indefinitely, according to Kaylee Graham who wrote the press release for Jake’s House.

The church is at 18824 Smokey Point Boulevard Suite #105. The food bank is open from 12:30 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. each Friday.

Donations like canned goods or gently used or new clothing can be dropped off or mailed to the church. If mailing in donations specify the package is for ‘Community Outreach.’

Graham also encourages people to think outside the box with other types of donations. She suggests items like gift cards, gas cards, oil changes, gym memberships, books, non-alcoholic hygiene items, baby items, dental items, pet care items or Bibles.

Larger items, such as furniture, can be donated; however, the church cannot store them. They ask donors to send a photo and a phone number instead and Jake’s House officials will follow up.

The food and clothing bank will operate on a first come, first served basis and they plan to place no requirements on their support.

“Come as you are…our desire is to be relatable and not judgmental. At Jake’s House we understand as brothers and sisters that everyone goes through trials and tribulations,” wrote Graham.

Questions about the food bank or donations can be answered at 360-363-4462.
