10 Percent of annual budget typically received in last week of year

Break the cycle of homelessnessALBUQUERQUE, NM (ANS – Dec. 27, 2015) -- While the week after Christmas is pretty slow for some, that’s not the case for Joy Junction Homeless Shelter CEO Jeremy Reynalds. He wants to up his already routinely frenetic pace in any way possible. Why the mad dash?

Reynalds explained for the last five years that 10 percent of the shelter’s annual budget has come in between the few days after Christmas and the end of the year.

“I was shocked when I discovered last year just how much,” he said. “I knew it was a lot of money, but it wasn’t until a careful analysis that I realized just how much. We need to let people know how important their gift is the next few days.”

People have different reasons for giving, Reynalds said, and whatever the reason is, the shelter appreciates them all.

“People are beginning to think about 2015 taxes, and perhaps their financial professional has said to either find a good charity they can donate to, or be prepared for a ‘donation’ of another sort-to their least favorite ‘Uncle.’”

Jeremy and Elma ReynaldsAs people plan their end of year giving, Reynalds said he hopes they will consider Joy Junction, where all donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent allowed by the law.

Reynalds was blunt. The need shows no signs of decreasing,” he said. “Despite what you may hear, homelessness is not going away andhunger is on the increase.

We are doing more than ever, and we need to be prepared to meet an ever increasing need. However, our ability to meet that need is limited by the amount of funds which come in. Furthermore, much of what we do in 2016 will be dependent on the funds that come in the next few days.”

What can people do to help? Reynalds said they can make an end of year donation by writing a check and mailing it to P O Box 26568, Alb. NM 87125 on or before Dec. 31 2015, donating online at www.joyjunction.org or texting a donation amount to 505 288 3350. In kind donations are also welcome at 4500 2nd St SW every day between 8am and 8pm.
