One of the most important keys to living life to the fullest is having the ability to give back to those in need. It’s sad to say, but it seems like lately the people who have the least are the ones who are more inclined to share and give to others. People who have more want to keep getting more, sometimes even if it means taking it from someone else. Such sad times, but I am here to say there is hope. There are people and places that still have hearts for others. Today I’d like to highlight one of those places.
Junction City Caring Place (JCCP) is a non-profit organization established in 2004, located at 1013 B W 8th Street in Junction City, Kansas. The Caring Place is a faith-based central resource center in Junction City, Kansas and its surrounding areas with FREE food, clothing, counseling and basic medical care. When I learned about JCCP, I knew immediately that I needed to be connected. The fact that people only have to show their ID to receive the free services offered by the Junction City Caring Place is amazing because most other organizations that provide free services require government documentation verifying the need for assistance.
The Junction City Caring Place has been an inspirational and motivating factor because of the results and the impact it has made in the community from when they first opened the doors back in 2004 to its position in the community currently in 2014. This organization has given support to over thousands of family in Junction City and the surrounding communities. Being faith-based gives the community a different perspective of the love of God through his giving help to one another during the difficult times in life.
The Caring Place is also looking to start offering free computer classes; basic computer skills, resume building and internet skills to those who might be interested.
Hours of Operation for the JCCP is Monday and Wednesday 10:00am -2:00pm (Clothing Only) Tuesday 10:00am -1:00pm (Food Only) Saturday 10:00am -12:30pm (Medical by Appointment and Clothing)
Junction City Caring Place is always in need of volunteers, food and clothing donations. Monetary donations are also accepted and greatly appreciated.

The Junction City Caring Place is a great organization that genuinely cares for the people in the community. I support this organization 100% and I’d like to encourage you to do the same. If you have time, go volunteer. If you have food or clothes you no longer need, donate them. Every little bit helps.
