Faithfully Serving Orillia & Area

Living for Jesus Outreach Ministries is a Registered Charity that has served the Orillia community since 2009.

This ministry reflects love, hope, acceptance, compassion and service. In 2011, Living for Jesus became a Registered Charity. From 2013 to 2019 they served a total 100,000 meals to those in need, approximately 40 to 60 people per day.

Rev. Jim Woolcott, the Board of Directors and numerous volunteers have been involved with every aspect of the Ministry, including a meal program (2009 to 2019) and a FREE clothing room (2009 to 2019 and 2021 to present).

Due to an extreme increase in their rent in 2019, Living for Jesus chose to close down their Mississaga Street location. It was difficult to find new premises during the lockdowns from 2020 to 2021 so Living for Jesus helped other local charities with funds for their projects (Building Hope, Orillia Youth Centre and Green Haven Women’s Shelter).

In 2021, the decision was made to simply provide FREE clothing to the community at a trailer in the parking lot beside the Alliance Church. It is located on Frederick Street (off Memorial Ave), Orillia. The hours for the clothing room are Monday, Wednesday and Thursday from 9 to noon. Donations are accepted only during those times. Clothing for the whole family is available and new items arrive regularly.

In January of 2023, Living for Jesus Outreach Ministries began accepting donations by etransfer. The email is and they have autodeposit.

Mission Statement

In Matthew 25:31-46 Jesus speaks …

“For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.”

Then the righteous will answer Him saying, “Lord when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You drink? The King will answer and say to them, “Truely I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.”
