Jericho Road Community Health Center Urgent Needs

Jericho Road CHC is reaching into our community here in Buffalo along with responding to the Ebola crisis in Sierra Leone. Their urgent needs are listed below. Please prayerfully consider what God would have you do to help.

Help Wanted: There is an opening on the JRCHC staff. Please see the attached file if you’re interested in joining their Billing Team.

The Bundle Up Buffalo winter outerwear drive is underway!  There are many ways to help including sharing their Facebook event to encourage others to help as well.  Their Saturday distribution is one month away on October 11. They are accepting new and gently used winter outerwear items and blankets for men, women, and children of all ages.  Children’s winter wear and blankets are the highest priorities, and they are also looking for coats, boots, scarves, hats, and gloves.  Contact Nick to schedule a drop off: / (716) 348-3000 x405.
