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(email@example.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.
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 firstname.lastname@example.org or to volunteer, contact Heather Wheeler at email@example.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!
If you would like any information on how you can get involved or what is happening with a specific ministry, please feel free to contact your Mission and Outreach elders with questions. Contact Randy at firstname.lastname@example.org and Sabrina at email@example.com.
