As you have no doubt noticed, gas and food prices are up. At the same time, the number of people who need to find a meal on the street is also up. At the same time, our funds are totally depleted. These things are all related..
The pantry is almost bare. We have meat for the soup for four more weeks. We are out of everything else except a few cans of potatoes and corn and three pounds of rice. There is no money for gas, iced tea mix, the xB payment, green vegetables, etc.
We have only made it this long, because “Come and See” Icons, Books & Art has been lending The King’s Jubilee money to cover shortfalls out of its operating expense money. Now that has gotten down to nothing and is impacting service to customers, as inventory is too low.
This newsletter is being printed in grayscale because part of a label sheet damaged the magenta drum in the laser printer and we don’t have the money to fix it.
Whatever you can do now will be greatly appreciated.
