Please help raise money for Jesus Camp Texarkana. There will be a fundraiser on Saturday, Oct. 5 starting at 10 a.m. Hamburgers or cheeseburgers with chips, a drink and dessert for a $5.00 donation.

Pre-orders are available and so is delivery!

CSR at 502 Arkansas Blvd is the location of the event. Call Debbie at 903-276-0464 to make arrangements to get your donations in and lunch out. The grill will be fired up until all of the burgers are gone which will be around 3 or 4 p.m.

What is Jesus Camp Texarkana?

Camp Jesus Texarkana is a very small community of individuals that have fallen on hard times and found themselves in need of a place to call home.

Joe Narens owns the property. He didn’t create the camp for the people, the people created the need for the camp. There is no government funding, no grants coming from the state, just a man with a big heart and a group of folks that happened to land on his property.

How Can You Help?

What Do They Need at the Camp?

The huge amount of rain in recent weeks has made life a little bit more of a challenge for residents at the camp. Thankfully many folks have donated items to give some relief to the people that call Jesus Camp – Texarkana home.

Some of Texarkana’s homeless souls have a safe, peaceful place to gather.

Fresh drinking water is not a luxury, it is a necessity.

Getting fresh city water set up for the camp brought great joy to all that stay at the camp. Now they have power too!
