Mission and Outreach

during COVID 19 

WAKE Up and Read's 8th Annual Book Drive: January 23 - February 28, 9a-2p

WAKE Up and Read is a community coalition made up of 30+ committed organizations working together toward one common goal -- improving childhood literacy.  Between 10 am -2 pm, please bring children's books by the church and leave them in the marked bins at the front doors.  Books that are needed are:

  • books that babies through 5th grade will want to read

  • books that pique a child's interest

  • books that are new or gently read

  • books that reflect a diverse population

 

February Blood Drive is Rescheduled

The February Blood Drive at WFPC has been rescheduled until late March due to the surge in COVID cases. If you signed up for an appointment at the last drive you will be contacted via email with rescheduling information. Please contact Amanda McCabe with questions(asmccabe27587@gmail.com).

 

Tri Area Ministry (TAM)

Did you know that you can download a full list of all requested food and personal care items on the Tri Area Ministry website at https://triareaministry.com/donate/? They even provide a link to their Amazon wish list to make shopping even easier! Check it out. Donations can be dropped off at 149 E. Holding Ave. downtown Wake Forest every Monday and Wednesdays from 10 am to 1pm and the second and third Saturdays of each month (same times). In addition, there is a convenient 24/7 drop-off box out front if you can't drop-off donations during the open business hours.

 

Backpack Buddies

Our WFPC Backpack Buddies program continues to operate off campus through weekly meal packing and deliveries to The Wake Forest Boys and Girls Club. If you would like to donate food items, please contact Ed Tharrington at etharrington@gmail.com or to volunteer, contact Heather Wheeler at heathersb73@yahoo.com. Thank you for your support!

 

Habitat for Humanity

Habitat for Humanity had its kickoff meeting this past Monday, bringing together seven faith coalitions in the greater Raleigh area.  New homes are still being constructed, but due to COVID only professional contractors and Habitat employees are permitted to work on Habitat sites.  Hopefully in a few months we will be able to start volunteering again!  Stay tuned for future updates!
