Celebrating Jubilee Jobs of Lexington
We say it a lot, but mean it every time when we say that we couldn’t do what we do without the help of our extremely supportive community here in the beautiful commonwealth.
One of our many beloved community partners is Jubilee Jobs of Lexington. This relationship has been on-going since 2014, and is continuing to deepen as we both collectively respond to the needs of Central Kentuckians.
In response COVID-19, the JUST Feed Lexington program (Jubilee Unites Services To Feed Lexington) partnered with Fayette Sheriff’s Office, Local Taco Lexington, and Selma’s Events and Catering to bring nine different shelters in Lexington hot meals twice a day and we were so lucky to be one of those nine shelters.
“We have always been advocates for those who we consider trying to ‘survive at a disadvantage’ and the women at GreenHouse17 are a true example of that. So anytime we can reach out and assist in any way, we do and we will” – Darralesa Bryant, Supervisor of Job Counseling at Jubilee Jobs.
“We had so much to navigate and manage to figure out how to keep domestic violence victims safe from both those who were harming them but also from the pandemic, but because of Jubilee Jobs I never had to worry about how we were going to feed survivors and their families at two different locations” – Darlene Thomas, Executive Director at GreenHouse17.
“Our biggest challenge during this quarantine was feeding two different locations. Because of the help of Jubilee Jobs we were able to make sure everyone both at shelter and at hotels off-site were well nourished and fed, we can’t thank you all enough for all of your help” – Chef Tim of GreenHouse17.
Serving a total of 16,922 meals over nine weeks Jubilee Jobs truly rocked it. We are so grateful for Darralesa Bryant and the rest of the Jubilee Jobs team. You’ve served our community so well.
Our relationship with Jubilee Jobs is one that we cherish and look forward to continuing to nurture and grow.
