September Charity of The Month – Jacob’s House
The San Diego Field and Warehouse division lead by Tommy, General Superintendent selected, Jacob‘s House as our September Charity.
When a loved one is in the hospital, the last thing a family should have to worry about is a hotel (or how to pay for it). Jacobs House provides those in need with a place to stay so that they can get some rest during the difficult time.
It was a true privilege to be able to meet with Linda Mejia, Executive Director at Jacob’s House as well as Jennifer Duregger, Jacob’s older sister during our visit.
