Blessings Under The Stars!
I just sold my 100th one yesterday.
The support and feed back has been overwhelming. I’m Truly humbled 😌 If you would like to purchase a copy for $15 email me. Thank you Kim Kramarz for purchasing the 1st one and Doug for the 100th. -Keep Shining ☀️ -Jess
Thank you to Hawk at KXLY 4 News for taking his time to come out and toure Blessings Under the Bridge's new HUB. What a blessing this new chapter will be for our mission. Thank you Valley Christian School - Spokane Valley, WA for working with us in our time of need. We look forward to our new relationship.
For our fans and friends, please visit our Go Fund Me page to support and help BUTB with our move expenses, material costs, and needed supplies. Also, if you are able to help with our New HUB wishlist please email Jessica @ BlessingsUnderTheBridge@gmail.com
Our goal is to be up and running at 100% by June 1st without missing one Wednesday night feed where we serve about 300 + of Spokane's homeless and struggling friends.
UPDATE:This weekend we broke ground into our new HUB. We unpacked some loads, organized shelves, knocked down walls and painted room after room. Over the next week we will continue to move over more things, finish painting, organize our new space and make this our own.
Yay! It was so nice to end my evening last night with another blessed check presentation by Vanessa and Washington Federal.
I am so excited and blessed by their support for BUTB and our mission for the second year.
Thank you to each and every person these past 12 years who has given or gives your time, money, prayers, donations, sponsorship, relationship, partnership, friendship, and most of all your heart. Nothing goes unnoticed!
Thank you Spokane Regional Health District (Torney Smith, Mike Riley, and Kim Kramarz), Molina Healthcare (Peter Adler), Microsoft for this amazing gift to bless our homeless and struggling friends on the streets of Spokane.
Very soon this bus will be equipped with laptops from Microsoft and a comfortable seat to relax in to take care of business.
With our new mobile network hub (internet cafe), our homeless friends will be able to connect with family, fill out job applications and resumes, use email, and much more.
The BLESSINGS PORTAL will be another medium of HOPE for our struggling friends in our community.
Tis the season for a reason to bless others.
On June 15th at 7 p.m., The Spokesman-Review and Blessings Under the Bridge have teamed up to offer a private concert on the rooftop of the historic Spokesman-Review's Chronicle Building in Downtown Spokane.
We are excited to bring in Seattle’s own Aaron Crawford to perform with special guests Christy Lee and Luke Yates. Aaron Crawford is a rising country star backed by his own label, Cascade Country. He has a huge heart that is filled with compassion for those in need.
"A Blessings Under the Stars" is a fundraiser to support the mission of Blessings Under the Bridge in our efforts to bring love, dignity, hope, and purpose to the poorest community of Spokane: the homeless.

Blessings Under The Stars!
It took her almost 8 years to write this book with the help, guidance and dedication from her editor Tawana Jones. She just completed the revision and new cover. Thank you to Craig Howard for sharing her milestone in this months edition of the Splash.
If you'd like a copy please send an email to: email@example.com

WE HAVE A NEW HUB!!
This last year, our dear friend and talented local artist Christy Lee wrote and recorded "A Blessings Under the Bridge (Homer's Song)" to share the story of one man's journey back home after living on the streets for 25 years and to support the mission to serve the homeless.
Please take a min and download this song on iTunes. It will be the best 99 cents you've ever spent and a true blessing to many others like Homer that still find themselves under our bridge!
Thank you Washington Federal!
BUNNIES & BLESSINGS
At Blessings Under the Bridge’s Wednesday night meal, the spirit of Easter never felt more real and hopeful! About 300 guests and volunteers came together With a dancing6’5” Easter Bunny (Rob Butterfield), Easter egg coloring, Easter baskets, hundreds of soft, lovable stuffed animals (lambs and bunnies), picture booth, colorful cookies, colorful BUTB shirts, and our usual plate-filled, and home-cooked fixings, the shared love was in the air.
Thank you to our groups that took their time to bless others: Air National Guard 141st Operations Group & 116th Air Refueling Squadron, Ridge Crest Ward’s youth group, and WSU Student National Pharmaceutical Association. Without you, the gifts of the night would have lacked the spirit of Easter.
A special thank you to the Girl Scouts for the “Socks of Love” and Pet Smart for the many stuffed animals.
We were blessed to have had Nadine Woodward, Spokane Mayor candidate, volunteer her time to serve for almost 2-hours on our food line. Her joy for others was and is contagious. You are a gift to Spokane.
With a 2 year process of meetings, planning and excitement with Molina, it was so humbling and overwhelming to see this finally come to life. President, Peter Adler, a man with a great heart served at the summer event in 2016. His words were, “I left impacted, and woke up a changed man”!
Here is what is even better! They will accept all types of medical plans, they have a system they can tap into nationwide. We can also embrace other medical support. Their hearts are 100% for those in need. Just as Dr. David Molina’s Hearts mission was when it was founded. ~ Simply beautiful! This goes live Aug 22nd! Yay!!
Thank you so much Molina Healthcare! Bless you all. Thank you Peter for following your heart and bringing Blessings to our community, our friends and most of all bringing “Blessings” Under the Bridge.
Thank you so much to Rebecca with the The Spokesman-Review for covering this story.
I’m excited! God thank you so much. You are showing off! 🙌🏻 💪🏻
