Tarheel State reaches out to Sunshine State

Lincoln Herald Staff

LINCOLNTON, N.C.––You probably know how Christian Ministry of Lincoln County helps local folks in need.

But now, in the cataclysmic wake of Hurricane Irma, the ministry is reaching out to folks from Florida affected by the deadly storm. That’s the word Monday from Mitzi Williams. The executive director of Christian Ministry, Williams said there is much to be done to help the Floridians who have been forced to evacuate and leave their homes.

“Currently,” she said, “the ministry is in the process of helping several groups to feed Hurricane Irma evacuees. As we do this, the ministry food supply is at a critically low level. To be able to meet the same needs as we did in August, we will need the following amounts of food to make it the next two months.”


Williams cited:

  • 1,800 containers of beef stew;
  • 3,600 boxes of macaroni and cheese;
  • 3,600 cans of soup;
  • 1,800 boxes of rice;
  • 1,800 containers of dry beans;
  • 3,600 cans of beans;
  • 1,800 boxes of spaghetti;
  • and 1,800 cans of spaghetti sauce.

“The ministry is also out of blankets,” she added. “Wal-Mart has new blankets for $5. But we will take used blankets that are in good condition. As the ministry works to meet the needs of our community, please consider how you can help.”

If you have any questions about these or other efforts by Christian Ministry, call Williams at the numbers below.

Christian Ministry of Lincoln County is located at 207 S. Poplar St. in Lincolnton. Call (704) 732-0383 or (704) 732-2691 for more information.
