Mission and Outreach
during COVID 19
Habitat for Humanity
WFPC representatives participated in a virtual dedication on Monday, July 20, hosted by the Northern Wake Faith Coalition for three Habitat for Humanity homes completed this year as part of the spring build. It was a joyous time to dedicate the homes in prayer and celebrate three families who are now thankful and feeling blessed to call Wake Forest home -- Heidi Romero-Quesada, Nancy and Brian Wade, and Shaneika Burgess. Thank you to everyone who has supported Habitat!
Glory Tabernacle Food Pantry Project
Due to unexpected delays in getting zoning and building permits, the project to pour a concrete driveway and build a covered area to help Glory Tabernacle Food Pantry is temporarily delayed. We will reschedule the workdays once we have all the necessary permits. Contact Randy Parrish at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Christmas Angel Special Offering
Let's think Christmas in July. That's right! Our Christmas Angel ministry wants to be geared up and ready to assist local families and senior citizens in our area with gifts and necessity items during the 2020 Christmas season. Your generous financial support will help to share love and cheer. Please submit your online or mailed-in donations specified for the Christmas Angel Program to help end the year on a bright note for our neighbors in need.
The Backpack Buddies team is requesting plastic grocery bags in addition to the following food items for support of their weekly meal deliveries to Northern Regional Center. Food items include canned soups, ramen noodles, canned chicken and tuna, canned pasta, mac n cheese, canned vegetables, canned fruit, canned chili, Pop Tarts, oatmeal and juice boxes. (No glass please, and easy open tab tops are always preferred.)
If you are interested in helping the Backpack Buddies Ministry by participating in making deliveries or joining a small team to pack, please email Heather Wheeler at email@example.com for more information.
WFPC Community Garden
Interested volunteers must either sign up online or contact Melanie Floyd to schedule all dates and times to work onsite. COVID-19 Precautions: Healthy volunteers. Sign up in advance. Practice physical distancing.
It's summer in the Giving Garden, and you know what that means...tomatoes! And eggplant, cucumbers, pole beans, bush beans, zucchini, yellow squash, and peppers. Pop in the garden for a visit any time, and check out the SignUpGenius if you want to volunteer.
Do you have shovels, rakes, hoes, hand trowels, loppers, pruners, or other garden and yard tools or equipment in good condition that you no longer need? Please consider donating them to the garden. Place them in the shed or alongside the garden fence out of the path of vehicles, or contact Melanie to arrange pickup.
Do you or your neighbors have excess produce from your home gardens? Our local pantries and food distribution programs need it! You can donate produce directly to local pantries, or we can deliver it with Giving Garden harvests.
Remember: To keep each other safe, we still require signing up in advance, physical distancing, and signing in and out of the garden, and we encourage wearing masks when working in close proximity to volunteers outside of your household.
