We have an urgent need as we recently found out that one of our Joshua families is currently homeless and are unable to receive assistance at this time. We are reaching out to our wonderful Joshua community and asking for donations of Giant gift cards to help with this need. If you are able to help, gift card donations can be dropped off at our Joshua Learning Center (1459 Market St, Harrisburg) Mon - Fri, 8-4 pm.

If you’d like to donate online, donations can be made at http://www.joshuagroup.org/donate-now (mark it as “gift for family”) and we will get the funds to the family.

Thank you for your continuous support of our students and families at Joshua Group.
