Christian Ministry Thanks Fundraiser Supporters
They're the coolest!

Lincoln Herald Staff

LINCOLNTON, N.C.––For all their support, they’re some cool folks indeed.

They’re the supporters who turned out for the recent “Cool Event” ice cream social fundraiser to benefit Christian Ministry of Lincoln County (see related coverage, only here in The Herald). And Thursday, executive director Mitzi Williams expressed her gratitude to them all.

“Thank you to all those who came out to Salem Lutheran and United Church of Christ last Sunday for the annual ice cream social,” said Williams. “The proceeds benefit Christian Ministry’s soup kitchen. This year, we received more than $3,000, and we are so very grateful to all those who came out to support us. 

“I now have a challenge to all those who were unable to come out and enjoy the ice cream and fellowship last Sunday,” she continued. “The soup kitchen is in desperate need of a new stove, and we need a new compressor for one of our walk-in freezers. The estimated cost of the stove will be $7,000 and the compressor, about $5,000––a total of $12,000. And thanks to last Sunday’s event, we only need $8,000, so my challenge is that if only five people from each of our 102 member churches contributed only $16 per person, we would then have the funds we need. Please keep our ministry in your prayers. Thank you!”

In other news, Williams noted other things the ministry needs. These include bedsheets in all sizes and such household items as pots, pans, glassware and silverware.

Plus, the food pantry needs peanut butter, Chef Boyardee foods, crackers, pop-top canned meats, canned beans (not green beans), laundry detergent and toilet paper.

And the clothing closet needs help as well, as Williams noted.

“We need men’s, women’s and children’s underwear in all sizes,” she said, “and men’s T-shirts in all sizes.”

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