Christian Ministry Concerned By Return Of Evictions
Moratorium set to end June 1; but ministry helps out

Lincoln Herald Staff

LINCOLNTON––With the moratorium on evictions ending soon, Christian Ministry is reaching out and helping out.

That’s the word this week from Mitzi Williams, executive director of Christian Ministry of Lincoln County. Williams cited recent coverage of the topic and another local charity by a Charlotte television station’s news outlet.

“WSOC’s story on Charlotte’s Crisis Assistance Ministry and the moratorium on evictions expiring June 1 created concern in our community,” she said. “Due to several generous donations, we are prepared to help with larger past-due rent and utility bills. We are also able to give out larger quantities of food. Our normal process is to give a buggy of food every 30 days per household. Currently, we are giving food out every 15 days. We also give out perishable foods while the soup kitchen is open. Yesterday, it was rotisserie turkey and strawberries!

“The ministry is practicing health safety,” she continued. “Seating in the lobby is ‘socially distanced,’ with a maximum of 10 people. There is a Plexiglas wall between the interviewer and the client, and clients receive their food buggies outside on the dock.”

Do you know of someone that needs help with rent, utilities or food? Williams reminds you that Christian Ministry is here to help.

Christian Ministry of Lincoln County is located at 230 E. Water St. in downtown Lincolnton. Call (704) 732-2691 or (704) 732-0383 for more information on upcoming efforts and volunteer opportunities for individuals and church and business groups.
