The Free Store at Camp Christian

By Bruce Bowerman-Jett - Friday September 3, 2021

Free Store Aug 21 CLet me first introduce myself. My name is Bruce Bowerman-Jett, and I assumed the role of leading the Free Store this past winter. The Free Store at Camp Christian has served over 2,200 people in need over the last eleven years. It has been a meaningful ministry and much needed resource for folks in the surrounding area around Camp Christian. It is a blessing to be able to serve our community with this ministry.  

The Ezerins' House on the Camp Christian campus is where we call home. It allows us to continue operation all year long. The Free Store is open Tuesday evenings 6p-9p and on Fridays 3p-6p. As we return to normal hours of operation, we welcome any donation you can give. We are in desperate need of:

    • Kids Clothes – Ages 24 months – Teens
    • Kids Winter Coats – Ages 24 months – Teens

We also continue to stock our food pantry and blessing box. Listed are some of the shelf-stable items that we are need of:


Fruit cups Applesauce Fruit juice boxes
Raisins Canned vegetables Canned tuna
Canned chicken Beef jerky Rice
Au gratin potatoes Instant mashed potatoes Stuffing mix
Macaroni & cheese Spaghetti noodles Spaghetti sauce
Elbow macaroni Spaghetti O's Ramen noodles
Hamburger helper Dry milk Boxes of cereal
Instant oatmeal Peanut butter Peanuts

We have an Amazon wish list for the Food Pantry if you would be interested in making your donation that way.  Items can be ordered and shipped directly to Camp Christian. The list can be viewed at https://a.co/f9hMkNQ. (Please note, this is just a simple way to streamline these types of donations. You can always purchase items from your local stores and/or take collections at your Congregations and then bring them to Camp Christian.)

You can also make monetary donations to The Free Store at Camp Christian at http://www.ccinoh.com/donation.aspx. Be sure to designate your donation to the Free Store at Camp Christian.

This ministry has meant a lot to those it has served over the years. Again thank you! Together, we can continue to share God's love with those in need for years to come. Thank you for your continued support of The Free Store at Camp Christian!
