2022 Fall Newsletter
Updated: Nov 24, 2022
The fall brings so many changes - from the weather to the leaves...to Wholesome Riches.
To serve the community well, our team is excited to share the changes we've made to meet the needs of the community in a bigger, more impactful way.
Rather than serving many families across multiple distribution locations, Wholesome Riches now serves hundreds of families at 6 key host locations in Camden.
Through this refocusing, we are able to steward our resources effectively and build deeper relationships with the families that need us most.
Our impact is your impact. Because of your continued prayer and support, Camden families are gaining access to vital food resources and the most important message they will ever receive... the gospel.
As a Spanish-speaking resident of Camden for many years, Carmen has found a new purpose in serving her community.
Carmen had been attending food distributions with her family for a year and a half. Lines stretched far down the street and with limited help, Carmen was asked to lend a hand. She instantly fell in love. So much so, she returned multiple times a week to serve her community by translating for those who needed help. Carmen's husband shared how much purpose has been brought to Carmen's life through serving.
Many volunteers like Carmen have joined us in this calling and God has done the impossible. He has provided for and given rest to those in need and filled so many with purpose. He has healed and united families. He has and continues to show his people love and kindness.
We are so thankful to serve Him and we are so thankful to see how He has used Carmen to reach Camden families.
The Wholesome Riches team joined forces with the Camden City Mayor's Office in an effort to clean up the city! Clean-ups took place at various locations throughout the city and gave us a great way to connect with the community. We also had local students join us!
Please join us for the next clean-up day by checking out our social media pages for future dates.
The Food Bank of South Jersey's Outstanding Direct Service Provider Award
On Sept. 31st, Wholesome Riches was awarded FBSJ's Outstanding Direct Service Provider at Camden City Schools. We are incredibly honored to receive this award and need to acknowledge the help of our volunteers, supporters, and partners. Because of all of you, we are able to answer the call to serve Camden, NJ.
Spread Holiday Cheer through Service & Support
The holiday season is approaching and we need your help! Wholesome Riches is preparing to support and bless families now and through Thanksgiving and Christmas. With the increased need, please consider volunteering your time or making a contribution that will provide essential food resources to families that need it most. Here are three ways to join us as we continue to answer the call to meet the needs of Camden families during the 2022/2023 school year.
