Crisis Control Ministry Holiday Honor Card Sales to Benefit Local Community

The sale of 2017 Crisis Control Ministry Holiday Honor Cards is underway, marking more than 21 years that the local organization has offered cards that make a positive difference in the community.

“People love our cards because they offer an opportunity to give a meaningful gift in honor of the receiver that also benefits Crisis Control Ministry and our work with economically vulnerable people in our county,” said Margaret Elliott, Executive Director of Crisis Control Ministry.

For a minimum donation of $5 per card, Crisis Control Holiday Honor Cards can be sent by the purchaser themselves, or be signed and sent by Crisis Control volunteers. All proceeds from these cards directly benefit Crisis Control Ministry. Donations are tax-deductible. Two design options are available – one created by graphic artist Beth Jones and one painted by well-known local artist William Mangum, celebrating the release of his 30th annual Honor Card with this year’s Rise Up design. Mangum’s Honor Card program has raised over
$6 million for various organizations that assist individuals and families
across the state including Crisis Control Ministry here in Forsyth County.

“Sending Holiday Honor Cards allows me to share the peace, hope and joy of the holiday season with friends and clients while helping Crisis Control provide emergency assistance to folks for rent, utilities, food, and prescription medication,” said Claudette Weston of Weston & Associates. “It is truly a gift that spreads love and encouragement to the community.”
