Give With Us This Christmas Season With The Christmas From The Heart Program

Christmas is just around the corner and many people are already thinking of different ways they can help others this Christmas season.  The Jones Real Estate Group would like to invite each of you to give with us this Christmas Season with the Christmas From The Heart Program.

As many of you may be aware, Greg & Ann Jones have been involved with J-Jireh Ministries & the Christmas From The Heart Program for the last six years. This program works to gather, wrap, fill, and deliver shoeboxes filled with Christmas gifts to abused, battered and neglected children living in shelters in and around Bexar County.  These children are products of broken homes in every fashion you can imagine.   Christmas From The Heart’s  goal is to give them hope and point them towards a more productive life.

Last year the Christmas From The Heart Program delivered nearly three thousand shoebox gifts to children in 39 shelters all across our area. This year our goal is 4000 shoebox gifts and 50 shelters or organizations.  This year J-Jireh and Christmas From the Heart has been contacted by several additional organizations to supply hundreds of more Christmas Gifts for children in need!  The challenge has grown and we need your help  this year!

Below is information on How to Fill a Shoebox and the Christmas Shoebox Label to insert for the shoeboxes.  There are lots of simple and easy things that can fill a shoebox for example:  shampoos or small hygiene items, small gifts- like silly putty, play dough, inexpensive jewelry, caps, T- shirts, headbands,  scarves, etc.    It is not how much you spend on the items in the box, but your thoughts in filling the shoebox for the individual child.

Another way to help is by donating empty shoeboxes that can  be used to wrap gifts in.  A great (and easier) alternative to empty shoeboxes that can be used instead of the shoeboxes is plastic shoeboxes with lids that can be lined with red or green tissue paper.  These boxes can be bought at The Dollar Store or…. $1.00!  You can also DONATE monitarily to J-Jireh Ministries and The Christmas From The Heart Program.

Filled Shoeboxes, empty shoeboxes or gifts for the shoeboxes can be dropped off at ANY Phyllis Browning Company Office.


6061 Broadway
San Antonio, TX 78209
210 E. Blanco Rd.
Boerne, TX 78006
24200 IH-10 West, Ste. 101
San Antonio, TX 78257
4372 N. Loop 1604 West, Ste. 102
San Antonio, Texas 78249

Thank you in advance for your willingness to help  these children.  Participating in this program has truly been eye opening.  You see first hand how incredibly blessed we are and how a generous Christmas donation can make someone’s Christmas.  For more information about J-Jireh Ministries and this amazing Christmas program please visit:

Cherish Our Independence In This Land That We Love

Celebrating the 4th of July each year is a wonderful time to reflect and cherish our independence in this land that we love.  We have a rich and blessed heritage in this amazing free country.

We have a WINNER!

We want to congratulate our winner of the 4th of July GIVEAWAY from the Jones Real Estate Group!  Congratulations JOYCE ANDERSON!!!  We hope you have a wonderful time celebrating the 4th of July with this awesome gift!

Today we want to share with you the story of our beautiful national anthem and a few thoughts from members of the Jones Real Estate Group with the Phyllis Browning Company.








The Star Spangled Banner

On September 13, 1814, British warships fired shells and rockets onto Fort McHenry in Baltimore Harbor and pounded the American fort for 25 hours. The bombardment, known as the Battle of Baltimore, came only weeks after the British had attacked Washington, D.C., burning the Capitol, the Treasury and the President’s house.

A week earlier, Francis Scott Key, a 35-year-old American lawyer, boarded the British flagship in the Chesapeake Bay in order to persuade the British to release a friend who had recently been arrested. Key’s tactics were successful.  However, because he had gained knowledge of the impending attack on Baltimore, the British did not let him and his companions go. The Americans were allowed to return to their own vessel but the Britsh continued to guard them. On September 13, Mr. Key watched as Fort McHenry began being bombarded, eight miles away.

Key said this about the event, “It seemed as though mother earth had opened and was vomiting shot and shell in a sheet of fire and brimstone.”  In the darkness of the night, Key saw red flares erupting in the night sky and he was certain the British would win. The hours passed slowly, but in the clearing smoke of “the dawn’s early light” on September 14, he saw the American flag—not the British Union Jack—flying over the fort, announcing an American victory!

After witnessing such a spectacular event, Key wrote his thoughts on paper while he was still on board the ship and set his words to the tune of a popular English song.  Later, his brother-in-law, a commander of a militia at Fort McHenry, read Key’s and had it distributed under the name “Defence of Fort M’Henry.” The Baltimore Patriot newspaper began to print it, and within weeks, Key’s poem, which had been named “The Star-Spangled Banner,” appeared in print across the country.  Keys’s words have become an immortalized anthem that we proudly sing in celebration of that great victory won on a September night in 1814 and of the precious liberties we enjoy in this blessed nation.



Our Patriotic Sentiments

The 4th of July humbles me when I think of the patriots who risked theirs and their family’s lives and fortunes to win this country’s independence from tyranny. The day also reminds me of our brave men and women serving in theaters all across the planet to keep us free!  With all the issues that we face, it is still the best place on earth to be!- Greg Jones

I have reflected a lot lately about what the state of our country must have been in 241 years ago.  I have thought about the families that had come to America to create a new life for themselves.  I have thought about the truly inspired men who gathered together and created the Declaration of Independence and I feel fortunate that they did this.  In this day, I am not sure a document like this could have been created and fought for the way that document was.  I am incredibly grateful for our founding fathers and for all those men and women who have sacrificed and continue to sacrifice so much so I can enjoy my freedoms.- Gary Wolff

From all of us here at the Jones Real Estate Group Happy 4th of July and Thank You to those men and women who daily protect our freedom and liberities!
