JOY Ministries Christmas campaign underway

In one week the Columbia-Adair County Community has donated $12,000 to the J.O.Y. Ministries Annual Christmas Campaign! "This is so amazing - but we still have a ways to go," says J.O.Y Vice President Hannah Peck.

The 2022 J.O.Y. Ministries Christmas Campaign will be J.O.Y.'s largest to date, with a fundraising goal of $45,000. In 2022 JOY opened Ruth's Place, a women & children's shelter. The expenses of operating a multi-unit shelter, continued operation of Cally's House, and meeting the ever-growing needs of the Adair County community are cause for this ambitious goal.

If you would like to support J.O.Y. this holiday season, you can donate today at or mail your donation to:
