Financial Peace!

The Jarboe Foundation's goal is to energize each individual, that they may recover from their struggle quicker. We offer resources to better their long term financial situation and encourage them to take actions that will allow them to pay it forward in the future.  This is one such resource.

During the year, and specifically during our Thanksgiving and Christmas projects, we are always strongly recommending a financial management class that almost the entire foundation has personally attended. This valuable resource is "David Ramsey's Financial Peace University".  It has changed our lives for the better, and we want to pass it on to as many people as we can.  Although there is a small fee for the course, we still think it is a worth-while investment.  For families that want to better their situation but simply cannot fit the cost into their budget, please contact us so we can discuss a solution to get you to the class!

The "Everyone Enjoys XMAS" follow up!

Just received a letter from one of our delivery drivers and their experience with the Everyone Enjoys Xmas project:

“During one of the many deliveries of Christmas presents to those families struggling through the holiday season, I encountered a Family that touched me. Upon knocking on their front door, I was greeted by a woman who looked puzzled as to why I was there.

I explained that I was from the Jarboe Foundation and that we had heard that she might need a little help this Christmas, at which time I presented her with a large bag full of wrapped presents. She stood there awestruck and placed her hand over her mouth as tears started to fill her eyes. She struggled to say something but couldn’t as she was clearly over run with emotion.

I then noticed that her two young grandchildren were behind her, and had clearly witnessed everything and they started to jump around and cheer, “ we are gonna get to have Christmas”. At that moment she couldn’t help but start to weep and repeatedly say “ Thank you” as she stood there not knowing what to think. As I got back in my car and prepared to head to the next home, I saw her still standing in the doorway with her hand covering her mouth and tears in her eyes and the sounds of the enthusiastic children celebrating in the background could be heard.

As I drove away, There she stood, watching me still shocked and full of appreciation. I feel that It meant as much to me as it did to them. It was one feeling that I’ll never forget.”

Welcome!

This is such an exciting time for us!  Welcome to our awesome and brand new website for The Jarboe Foundation.  As we finish up with our Thanksgiving 2013 project with a goal to help feed 30 families on Thanksgiving,  we are already prepared for a much loftier goal for our exciting "Everyone Enjoys Xmas" project!

Please join us in helping 100 local families give their children the Christmas morning that everyone deserves.  Every bit of help, no matter how small, will make a difference to someone.

-Alicia and Justin Jarboe
