Opportunities to Serve
Roof Above: As the need arises we will look to initiate our need for monthly volunteers to make lunches for our homeless friends. Please check back in the coming months.
In lieu of hosting Room in the Inn (due to the pandemic), we have joined with Roof Above to help provide lunches, cookies and in-kind donations for our 130 winter overflow nightly guests.
In-kind donations needs: Feel free to conveniently donate through our Amazon wish list, below. All items can be dropped at Roof Above, 945 N. College St. campus, between 9am-12:30pm.
Donate items from our Amazon Wish List to help us provide safe winter shelter for our neighbors!
HOMELESSNESS: Help celebrate & equip our Charlotte neighbors transitioning from homelessness into a home. We will collect items and deliver Welcome Home Kits.
- Click here to sign-up or choose items to purchase, and then return all item(s) to the church any morning this week.
