    For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat.
    I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink.
    I was a stranger and you invited me in.
    I was sick and you looked after me.
    I was in prison and you came to visit me.”
    Matthew 25:35-36

How Can You Help?

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and you invited me in. I was sick and you looked after me. I was in prison and you came to visit me” (Matthew 25:35-36).


Jenks CarePoint is staffed by volunteers and there is always a need for more workers to help.


We need people to:

  • Greet and check in clients
  • Sort and fold clothes
  • Work with clients in the clothing room
  • Conduct intake interviews in order to determine a family's need
  • Special projects such as building maintenance

We need businesses and churches to:

  • Regularly collect clothing for the CarePoint
  • Consider making this ministry a part of your Business or church budget
  • Become part of our ministry team

CarePoint accepts (may be new or gently used):

  • Men's and women's clothing in all sizes
  • Children's clothing in all sizes
  • New underwear and socks in all sizes
  • Shoes in all sizes
  • Coats in all sizes
  • Blankets
  • Sheets, towels

Special Projects


Homecoming is just around the corner and CarePoint is holding a special event to give dresses to those in our community who might not otherwise be able to enjoy such a  special evening.  If you have gently used semi-formal dresses that are just taking up space in your home, please consider bringing them to CarePoint for our Homecoming Dress Give Away event to be held on Thursday, September 26th.  

All donations are tax deductible.

Immediate Needs

The items below are currently in short supply at CarePoint.  All donations are tax deductible.

  • Disposable diapers, sizes 4, 5, and 6

  • Toddler and children's shoes

  • New men's and women's socks and underwear



THANK YOU VOLUNTEERS!

We have been blessed this summer by several community, church, and school groups as well as individual families that have come to CarePoint to help sort clothing and do a myriad of other projects as we prepare for a busy fall.

However, we can never have too many volunteers.  We receive donations each day, and sometimes struggle to keep up with them all.  If you or a group you are involved in would like to schedule a time to come and help, please call (918-600-2099) or email (kara@jenkscarepoint.org) and we will give you all the details. We look forward to hearing from you!




We are thankful for such wonderful donations!! We would love to have you come and help us get them sorted!
