Humble Beginnings, June 2010
Tabitha’s Way got its start when God put it on Wendy’s heart that help was needed for the less fortunate in Utah County’s south valley. After much prayer and fasting, Wendy decided to quit her successful career in Telecommunications and start Tabitha’s Way.
Tabitha’s initially started in a small space at 200 North 37 West in Spanish Fork. After a little more than a year, Tabitha’s moved to its current location at 140 North Main Street.
Today, Tabitha’s provides food and supplies to an average of 5,000 individuals monthly. We recognize that the ability to provide these services through the support of the community and by countless businesses.
Ongoing efforts are provided by: Stokes, Fresh Market, Sam’s Club, Starbucks, Kneaders, Jimmy John’s, Costco, Community Action, and The Utah Food Bank.
In addition, food drives from schools, scouts, families, civic and church groups have help provide staples to help Tabitha’s cause. We view these organizations and individuals as part of the body of Christ, whom God sent to show love to the world.
All donations are tax deductible to Tabitha’s Way. We are a certified 501(c)3 corporation with the IRS.
What’s in a Name
Tabitha’s was started in the summer of 2010 and was named from scripture. Acts 9:36-41 speaks of a disciple of Christ named Tabitha. At her death, many mourned for her because of the charity she offered so many in her community. Peter was moved by the affection of those mourning her. Peter then prayed over Tabitha and she was raised from the dead showing the awesome power and love of our God
