Did you know that your “stuff” can help minister to campers and spread the life-saving Truth of the Gospel?
This “stuff” is not just old cell phones or laptops sitting around; but, if you have valuable jewelry you never wear, maybe a golf cart, unused gift cards, or perhaps a cow (yes, even a cow or other livestock!), then you can help send a camper to Pine Cove whose life could be transformed by the love of Jesus!
Pine Cove is thrilled to announce that we now have an online process on our website where you can select items from a list that you no longer need and want to donate! Items are either shipped or picked up and then liquidated through our partner, iDonate. It’s that easy! Click our “Give Stuff” tab on the “Donate” section of our website and become a ministry partner with Pine Cove!
Once your item has been liquidated, the cash is donated to the work of Pine Cove, and you get the full tax deduction and the extra square footage. No need to build bigger barns in which to store our stuff… which has never been in God’s plan. Consider the parable of the rich fool in Luke 12:
“Watch out! Be on your guard against all kinds of greed; life does not consist in an abundance of possessions. And then Jesus told them this parable: The ground of a certain rich man yielded an abundant harvest. He thought to himself, ‘What shall I do? I have no place to store my crops.’ Then he said, ‘This is what I’ll do. I will tear down my barns and build bigger ones, and there I will store my surplus grain. And I’ll say to myself, ‘You have plenty of grain laid up for many years. Take life easy; eat, drink and be merry.’ But God said to him, ‘You fool! This very night your life will be demanded of you. Then who will get what you have prepared for yourself?’ This is how it will be with whoever stores up things for themselves but is not rich toward God.”
There is something refreshing and cleansing about releasing the tight grasp we have on our excesses – and letting God bless and direct the flow of cash that is freed up. Check out how it works!
