SPC has been involved in a collaborative community outreach for the homeless for the past several years. The Mission Committee still wants to help but we must change the way we participate due to COVID. We have mission money already budgeted to pay for the rooms at a local motel. This year we are asking for donations of food gift cards from the congregation.
Here is a list of places: Food Lion and Publix (on the island), Dominoes, Oak Island Restaurant, BBQ House, Oak Island Sub Shop, and Pizza Shack. These places either deliver or are within reasonable walking distance of the motel, so clients won’t need to worry about transportation. We are suggesting $20 per card and will collect cards at three locations: the church, (offering plate in the narthex), Julia Hill’s in St. James and Laura Cacchione’s on Oak Island. Collections will end Sunday, January 24,2021. SPC will still make a difference in the Winter Sheltering Program!
