Critical Need for Volunteers!
Looking for a way to make a difference in someone’s life? Do you want to strengthen our community? CCM has all types of volunteer positions from food pantry worker to pharmacy greeter to interviewer. Currently, we have a critical need for volunteers interested in spending three hours a week as an interviewer – an important and extremely rewarding position. Please see our volunteer page for more information and come for a no-obligation tour.
One Pharmacy Patient’s Story
Crisis Control Ministry’s Summer Newsletter introduces us to James Thompson and his mother Annette Joiner. James is currently a patient of CCM’s licensed free pharmacy, where he is able to obtain his critical prescriptions to manage his seizures and other conditions. In this issue you will also meet a few of our outstanding volunteers, including one who has volunteered every one of the 45 years CCM has served Forsyth County.
Latest Community Impact Report
CCM is a place where neighbors come together. Some offer funding. Some volunteer. Some seek help. All are valued and respected. In our 2017 fiscal year, 555 weekly volunteers individually greeted our neighbors and conducted 7,285 interviews resulting in over $3 million of critical needs being met for 15,458 individuals. Over 50% of our funding came from individuals. The complete report is available on our Annual Reports page.
