Jake's Partnership Adds Oomph to Holiday Programs

As Jake’s continues to expand its reach in the community, we’re excited by the network of partners coming out of the woodwork - and all the great work we can do together. Our partners are 501c3 nonprofits, faith-based or school-based organizations serving individuals in need because of a variety of circumstances, from financial struggles to foster care, cancer patients and more.

During the 2021 holiday season, we partnered with many new organizations focused on a variety of holiday drives. This included a handful of churches in the Oshkosh area.

“Jake’s is a wonderful opportunity to expand the impact we make because it’s one-stop shopping at 20% of retail or even less,” said Deb, of Our Saviors Lutheran Church, and an active community partner. “We’ve actually encouraged our people to give money instead, because we’ve got people who will do shopping (for donated goods). There’s just so many opportunities.”

Over the holiday break, when Oshkosh School District Food service was closed, their program fed children at several locations within the district and during the last they distributed shoes, underwear, socks and hygiene products from Jakes.

“What fun it was to see the children so thrilled to receive such beautiful, NEW items,” Deb said.

Other examples of Oshkosh area churches that partnered to serve the community include:

  • First Presbyterian Church in Oshkosh: Stocked personal care items, hygiene items, mittens, hats, socks all purchased from Jake’s.
  • St. Andrews Lutheran - Oshkosh: Hosted a children’s fair to give out toys, provided books to literacy groups.
  • First English Lutheran - Oshkosh: Sourced items such as coats, books - feed hungry kids in the summer and we did a toy give away - we had the games that we gave.

“Thank you for what you do,” said Patricia of First Presbyterian Church, “so we can do what we do.”
