LINCOLN COUNTY, N.C. – Every year, Holy Cross Lutheran Church collects Thanksgiving food items and monetary donations to pack between 100 and 125 holiday food boxes for families in need in Lincoln County for their Project Matthew Ministry. The Thanksgiving meal boxes come complete with a whole turkey, dressing, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, yams, cranberry sauce, and a pie.

“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me." Matthew 25:35

In early November, the United Way of Lincoln County was made aware of several families in need of a Thanksgiving meal at Lincoln Charter School, and due to our continued partnership with Holy Cross Lutheran, we knew we could help connect the charter school families with the meals they needed.

After speaking with Toni Whiteside, one of the Project Matthew Coordinators at Holy Cross, the church agreed to cover the requested meals for Lincoln Charter, and even provided United Way with additional meal boxes that we were able to use to serve families in need throughout Lincoln County, including several moms and children who participate in the Moms & Munchkins Parenting Program. Moms & Munchkins is a nonprofit adolescent parenting program that provides support, assistance, education and encouragement to young moms and their children. Holy Cross also provided the United Way of Lincoln County with several Food Lion gift cards to distribute to those in need this holiday season.

Additionally, in partnership with the Lincoln County YMCA, we were also able to provide families at the Lincoln County Child Advocacy Center and Salem industries with Thanksgiving meal kits.

At the United Way, we feel so blessed to be able to connect those who need it to resources and food. We are proud to be part of such a caring and loving community of givers.
