Year after year, supporters like you are there to help JCOC meet the needs of those who are hungry and homeless in our community. 2021 was no exception.

Your generosity ensured that we were able to distribute groceries multiple times a week and nutritious meals every night to families, individuals and veterans. Your compassion made it possible for men and women to come out of crisis situations and into a warm, safe place to call home.

Thousands of men, women and children received services in 2021 thanks to you, even in the midst of a pandemic. As we journey into 2022, our focus remains the same. Will you join us as we continue our work to bring help, hope and healing to our community? Here’s how you can help.

Make a financial gift today. You can donate securely online at or mail a check to: JCOC, 1053 Virginia Beach Blvd., Virginia Beach, VA 23451.

Donate items from our Wish List. Our greatest need is bottled water. We are also in need of adults backpacks (new or gently used) and snack bags. Contact us at (757) 491-2846 or to make an appointment to deliver your donation.

Provide a Community Dinner. Volunteer Groups of all types and sizes are welcome, faith-based and community organizations, businesses and families! Currently, groups have several options to help. Come prepare and serve a meal in our dining hall, or assemble it at home, then drop it off and our kitchen managers will do the serving. All meals must be in to-go containers and can range from sandwiches and chips to fried chicken and sides to fast food combos. We have the following dates open in January that we need to fill quickly.

Monday, January 24
Tuesday, January 25
Wednesday, January 26
Thursday, January 27
Saturday, January 29
Sunday, January 30

For guidelines for preparing and serving the meal and a complete list of open dates for 2022, contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Krishna Loya at or (757) 491-2846, ext. 102.

We appreciate your continued support as we work together to make 2022 a better year for our community. Happy New Year!

With gratitude,
Todd Walker, MPA
