Now that we have had a few years of Community Outreach under our belts, our giving has grown year over year as well as our reach!
Our partnership with SOAR’s Hygiene Drive began in 2018. SOAR is a non-profit organization located in Raleigh, NC. The mission of the SOAR Hygiene Drive is to collect travel size hygiene products in order to create hygiene kits that are provided to children that attend Wake County Public School that are homeless or reside in a low-income household. Throughout the year collect travel size body soap, conditioner, combs, deodorant, hairbrushes, lotion, shampoo, toothbrushes, toothpaste, and mouthwash and prepare and deliver the kits to SOAR at the end of the summer.
Our partnership with the Meals on Wheels of Durham, NC’s “Adopt-a-Senior” program is where we adopt several senior citizens during the holiday season and purchase a gift of their choosing in an effort to spread some cheer.
Last but certainly not least, our outreach has extended the Loaves and Fishes Ministries located in Warrenton, NC where we have partnered with that local outreach’s food pantry. Our annual food drives concludes on Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day which is deemed a day of service. All of the donated food assists in aiding food insecure people who live in Warrenton community.
