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.
32 Years of Providing Medications
There are a few free and charitable medical clinics around town that write prescriptions for their uninsured patients, but those clinics are unable to provide the medications. How frustrating it would be to know what medication is needed to improve your health and not have the resources to attain it! CCM’s licensed free pharmacy was established to meet that need whether it is a one-time prescription or something to treat a chronic illness. For more information, see our Pharmacy page.
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 2018 fiscal year, 263 weekly volunteer interviewers individually greeted our neighbors and conducted 6,833 interviews resulting in over $3 million of critical needs being met for 15,125 individuals. A total of 853 volunteers offered their skills to this ministry. The complete report is available on our Annual Reports page.
We’re excited to announce that Dr. Doug Maynard, who was instrumental in the founding of Crisis Control Ministry’s Licensed Free Pharmacy 32 years ago, received the coveted Don Lucey Award from the NC Association of Free and Charitable Clinics. Our Summer Newsletter covers how this critical service was created here at CCM. You can also read Elizabeth Gordon’s reflections on the impact participating in a Poverty Simulation had on her plus information on some great upcoming events for the whole family!
