We remain deeply grateful for the calls we receive every day about donations. Due to COVID-19, we are unable to accept non-monetary donations at this time. Right now we're serving our families primarily virtually, and what we're hearing most is they need help with mortgage/rent and utilities. (Thank goodness, CARES Act funding will assist with some of that for a few months.) And our friends at Loaves & Fishes are bringing boxes every week for our food pantry clients. Our Food Pantry is operating as a drive-through service on Wednesdays from noon-2:30 pm. To qualify, click here.

Ada Jenkins Center services look different than they did before COVID-19 – click here for the details -- and we don’t know yet exactly where volunteers will be most needed in the weeks and months ahead. Please email [email protected] if you are interested in learning about future volunteer opportunities.

We invite you to help us serve our families with a gift that's comfortable for you; click here to donate online. Checks may be sent to the Ada Jenkins Center at PO Box 1842; Davidson, NC  28036.

 For more information, please call 704-896-0471, ext. 102.

 Thank you for caring about the families in our community!

Please "save the date" for our special online celebration -- "A Show of Strength: An Online Benefit for the Ada Jenkins Center" -- at 6:45 pm on Saturday, October 17. We'll feature a message from our new CEO, Harold E. Rice, Jr.; a spotlight on our services in the time of COVID-19; and an inspiring story from one of the people whose lives you are changing with your support. More details are coming soon about the festivities, including: a week-long online silent auction with amazing prizes, one-of-a-kind "buy now" options, a daily 3 pm "premier" auction item, special guests, entertainment, and fun surprises. The financial needs of the individuals and families in the communities we serve remain great. We are counting on the funds raised through the auction and the virtual evening's festivities to help us continue our "pivoted" services: telemedicine, drive-through food pantry, LEARN Works Day Program, and distribution of funds for critical needs, including families' mortgage, rent, and utilities.
