We want to take a moment to mourn the death of a sweet local young woman, Brandi Jacobe. We all loved her. Our hearts and prayers go up to our Lord and Saviour for her grieving family. Please remember them in your prayers. She passed away December 15th and is survived by her young son, Colton Kuprienko.
And as 2013 has come to and end, and a new year has come, PRM would like to honor 3 incredible women: Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus, Michelle Knight. You are our nomination for Women of the Year. You are the example of courage, strength and perseverance. We praise God that you endured and survived, and we thank Him for your witness. Blessings to you dear sisters. May this year bring you peace and joy overflowing!
We just recently had the addition of three little girls to our program who need Christmas presents. The sponsored Christmas presents need to be dropped off by Monday the 16th at our office, so this weekend while you’re doing a little shopping, can you please consider buying something extra for these girls?
Their ages are 9, 8, and 7. You can call us if you need anymore information at 208-448-2800. Thank you!
Thank you, thank you, thank you for all your blessings this Christmas season… We have had ALL our children for our Christmas gift program sponsored, and it’s only December 9th! Your generosity continues to amaze us!
We are currently in need of some essential items for the families that come in… We need:
Size 6 diapers / pull ups
Size Newborn diapers
and full/single size beds.
If you didn’t get a chance to sponsor a child for Christmas, perhaps you’d consider donating something to keep their bottoms clean instead! That’s probably one of the best gifts you can give a baby!
Thank you & God bless.

Christmas is just around the corner. This time of year is a time of generosity, cheer, good news… please consider donating anything you can to Priest River Ministries. We rely solely on your donations to thrive and keep giving back to the community–to those who are most in need–of our services. Your donations keep our shelters open and their pantries full. Your donations go to supply necessities to the local children and women who are hurting. Your donations keep our office open so these people can accomplish their goals, whether it be furthering their education, getting legal aid, or looking for jobs and housing. Your donations directly influence the people in our community.
Please consider donating.
All of our PRMAFW children have been sponsored for Christmas!!! Thank you SO much!
Would you like to help us safely transport the women and children at the shelters? We are in desperate need of studded tires 205/70/15 for our van. If you have some lying around would you consider donating them to us.
Anyone gifted with the talent of decorating or painting windows for the holidays…if so would you be interested in using that gift at PRM? If so please call or send us a message. Thanks!
The year is rolling right through and we have a few thank-yous to say too…
Thank you so much for the beautiful Baskets Of Hope donated by Royal Neighbors Of America. (:
Thank you Cheryl Rink for your generous donation!(:
And we are currently in need of: three twin size beds and a kitchen table. Please let us know if you have any that you are looking to get rid of!
Finally, our Christmas sponsorship donation program for the children of PRMAFW is under way again this year! This is a great opportunity to bring joy into the lives of local children who have been through much heartache and devastation. Often the children only have one working parent, and so income is limited. By donating to our program to can bless these kids by giving their parent an opportunity to give their child a present for Christmas–something they might not have been able to afford before. We’ve all been in those tough situations.
If you have any questions, or you’d like to sponsor a local child, you can do so by emailing Audrey Encinas at firstname.lastname@example.org.
God bless and thank you!
The annual Walk of Remembrance will be this Wednesday beginning around 6:00pm. Please come and share your testimony, or the testimony of another who has suffered from Domestic Violence. There will be singing and poems read. You can come by the office for more information.
“I’m heading up a “household supply” drive benefitting Priest River advocates for women. This is a great organization that really supports our community. They run the shelter homes, offer tutoring, help with daycare, help with job hunting, provide short term food assistance, run a no cost second hand store, provide counseling, access to legal advice, and so much more. Help me support their cause with your donations. Examples of items needed: laundry detergent, diapers, wipes, trash bags, cleaning supplies, plastic wrap, paper towels, and bathroom tissue. Drop off your donations at three convenient locations: Priest River advocates for women, Salon Seven, and the Jachetta Agency.”
Thank you Brooke for your generous time devoted to our cause.
