Joshua's Place at Rivers Crossing

The Joshua’s Place Co-op at Rivers Crossing is simple:

  • Show up at your appointment time (all appointments are every other week on Thursday evenings). This keeps us from having longer waits and helps maintain social distancing.
  • Guests Pay $4 dollars cash and then submit their order for groceries, frozen meats, hygiene items, diapers and household items of their choice on our order form totaling $50-$60 worth of items.
  • While the order is being bagged up in our stock room guests meet with a Joshua’s Place leaders for about 8-10 minutes so they can get to know you.
  • You pick up your bags of items that you selected on your way out.

If this sounds like a program that would benefit your family. Please contact Jeff Hale at jhale@riverscrossing.com.

Deer Park Clothing Room

The Deer Park Clothing Room at the Holmes Building is open for families to shop for FREE clothing items Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to-3:30 p.m. In an effort to maintain proper distancing and cleaning protocols, only one family will be allowed in the clothing room at a time and mask must be worn.
