LINCOLNTON, N.C.––Christian Ministry just released its stats and facts for the month of July.

According to executive director Mitzi Williams, the local charitable organization’s emergency services arm helped 1,907 individuals last month. It helped 640 families with food and 63 families with utilities and/or rent. Clients took 59 showers at the facility. And 227 families were helped with furniture and household items and personal items. 

Williams continued that the LINC Home Meals program delivered 1,619 meals to local elderly and shut-in residents. And the ministry’s soup kitchen served 3,610 meals to 3,027 people.

Another part of the ministry is its clothing closet. Williams noted that underwear for men, women and children continues to be needed.

“Can you believe that school is starting back next week?” she rhetorically asked. “Just like at your home, the activities here at the ministry change. We start giving out school supplies, and parents are looking for school clothes for their children.

“I wish I had a great story to tell you about our clients,” she added. “But the truth is that this past month, we worked with the department of social services to help a toddler. We worked with a client who has so many anxiety problems that he is in and out of the hospital. And we are working with a family in which the mother is not expected to live. Please pray that, along with basic needs being met, our clients’ emotional needs will be met as well.”

Christian Ministry of Lincoln County is located at 230 E. Water St. in downtown Lincolnton. Call (704) 732-2691 for more information.
