On Tuesday, November 29th, Josiah White’s participated in Giving Tuesday by encouraging our supporters to give $29 to provide those we serve with spiritual life curriculum materials. Each gift of $29 went towards a Celebrate Recovery devotional for a teen in recovery, a Teen Application Bible for a teen in residential treatment, or a Jesus Storybook Bible for a child in foster care. We are grateful to announce we raised $3,387! We are so thankful for each donor that contributed to this amount!
Back in 1850, Josiah White founded this organization with an ultimate goal of providing spiritual education, which has remained a core part of our identity for the past 170 years. As you may know, because we are a state funded agency, any money spent on spiritual life must be raised outside of our normal operating budget. From our chapel program, to our foster homes, to our residential programs, to our staff and board meetings, spiritual life is a part of our DNA here at Josiah White’s. It’s a part of who we are as an organization and not simply something we do.
It is the generosity of donors that will enable us to expand and improve our spiritual life programming, both for our employees, and the children, teens, and families we serve. Thank you for your generosity!
