Lincoln Herald Staff firstname.lastname@example.org
LINCOLNTON––Like countless such entities, Christian Ministry continues to adhere to state-mandated changes.
Its executive director, Mitzi Williams, talked about that and adapting to this time of crisis this week.
“During this time of ‘social distancing,’” she said, “the ministry is still trying to meet the needs of the community. We have limited volunteers on site. But our LINC Home Meals volunteers are still going strong! We are not taking or giving out clothes, furniture or household items, but we are giving out food and financial help. If families need food faster than normal, we are here to help. Our soup kitchen is giving out to-go plates. There is plenty to eat for anyone that is hungry!
“Every day brings new challenges,” Williams added. “The longer people are out of work, the more people will be coming to us for financial help. During the recession of 2008, the community was there for the ministry, and I know you will be again!”
She also cited some important things for donors and volunteers to remember.
“We are taking donations of food Monday through Friday, as early as 8 a.m.,” she said. “Financial contributions can be mailed or donated through our Website (www.christianministryoflincolncounty.org). If you are thinking about volunteering, please call first and speak with Woody Saunders.”
And Williams requested that people keep Christian Ministry in their prayers.
