JBC Cares, Inc. will hold the soft opening of the new Emergency Food Pantry located  on the campus of Jerusalem Baptist Church, 1051 Clarkson Road, Hopkins SC 29061.  The pantry will be open from 10 am. until 2 pm each Thursday for distribution.

The Emergency Food Pantry is designed to provide food to local families who do not currently have the financial means to meet their nutritional needs. In addition to food, our pantry would like to provide local families in need with other basic necessities such as infant formula, diapers, toiletries, cleaning supplies, and paper products (when available).  In order to do this, we will depend on the generosity of our donors like you.

We ask your help in collecting the following items over the next week, so that we are able to successfully serve families in need on June 7th.  Items needed are listed below.

Please bring your donated items to Jerusalem Baptist Church, 1051 Clarkson Road on Saturday, May 26 from 10am -12pm; Sunday, May 27 from 10am – 1pm;  or call (803) 783-0651 if you have any further questions.

Thanks in advance for your support.
