Ways to Give and Serve: Simple Needs

At StoneBridge, our vision is to see our community transformed by God. We believe that we all have a part to play in seeing that take place. As we each become more like Jesus, are led by the Holy Spirit and do the good works God has prepared for us to do- we will see that happen more and more.  John Pearson is doing just that as he serves those in need in our community. When he learned that MUST has 10-12 families per month that receive apartments but typically have no furniture of their own he began to coordinate efforts with Simple Needs GA (find our more about them below) to help provide needed items for these families. SNGA provides many things every week to families and individuals coming out of homelessness; we would love to make sure they always have what they need to provide for these families.  We invite you to join with us to help replenish what goes out by donating items according to their weekly needs list.  Check your basement, attic, garage, closets, and donate those items you no longer use that are in “gently used” condition.  We will send out their most needed items as we receive them (*please also make sure to note the things they do not need*). If you would like to learn more about how you can be involved contact John Pearson at jpearson88@comcast.net

To Donate:

  • View the list of needed items: https://simpleneedsgablog.com/drives/
  • Email Brenda Rhodes at brenda@simpleneedsga.org. Let her know what you wish to donate.  She will give you the Marietta location and dates to deliver your items to them.
  • Formal donation drives are the first and third Saturdays every month from 10am-1pm

Note:  If you have a lot of items to deliver but cannot deliver on Saturdays, or if you have heavier items and need help, contact John Pearson of StoneBridge,  jpearson88@comcast.net for special help.
