Together, we met the Hunger Challenge!
Thank you to everyone who contributed to the Feeding Forsyth Hunger Challenge during March and April. Including the one-to-one donation match, more than $70,000 was raised to support our Client Choice Food Pantries in Winston-Salem and Kernersville. Last year, more than 4,489 individuals and families right here in Forsyth County received food assistance from CCM.
CCM Celebrates 45 Years
On April 4, 1973, Crisis Control Ministry opened its doors and we’ve been located on the same corner of Patterson Avenue and Tenth Street for these 45 years. We are so grateful to our community – those who trust us to help in a caring way, those who volunteer, and those who support us financially. We invite you to learn more by reading Margaret Elliott’s article in our latest newsletter, or by exploring the About Us, History, and Mission sections of our website.
Carved Eagle Raffle to Benefit Crisis Control
Mountain Mike, a professional chainsaw carver from Maggie Valley, NC, created an intricate carving of an eagle during the Kernersville Spring Folly. He then donated the piece to Crisis Control and it could be yours for the price of a raffle ticket. You can see the carving at the Kernersville Chamber of Commerce, where raffle tickets are being sold. The drawing will be held on Friday, May 25, at 10:00 AM. For more information and to see a picture of the carving, open this flier.
Critical Need for Volunteers!
Looking for a way to make a difference in someone’s life? Volunteers play a critical role in fulfilling Crisis Control’s mission. We are seeking new volunteers interested in spending three hours a week as interviewers – an important and extremely rewarding position. If this is something you might be interested in, please see our volunteer page for more information and come for a no-obligation tour.
