About Us

We are Jess & Deb


We believe we have been brought together for a purpose.  We believe we have both been given a second chance to use our talents and expertise to give back to the community.  We know there is so much more we can do and we pray you come help at an event or donate so we can continue this developing mission.

Show your colors!


Giving back comes in many shapes and sizes.  You might volunteer your time at an event or donate so we can continue to reach out.  Remember any donation over $30 receives an I-Own-It.Today t-shirt and wrist band.  Get yours today by clicking the picture.

We asked a few of our volunteers why donating time, money or sharing their talent was so important to them.  Click on the picture above to watch what a few of them had to share.  

Who Are We, Community Service


Our Mission

To provide goods, services, and education to people in need, and inspire all to community service.

Our Vision

That all people will one day have the skills and education to live a full, independent life, and lead their own mission to serve those in need. 

Goods & Giving

We provide groceries, snacks, clothing, and toiletries to assist struggling individuals and families to help make ends meet.  

We also provide opportunity for all to volunteer at community events.  We focus teaching how to share the talents we have with others, and working together as a team servicing those who are struggling.  

With our giving we also provide service connections to help individuals and families help themselves.  It is about growth toward independence not enabling.
