June results

Our June sort was a good one, we collected 1174 pounds.!!! Thank you to our donor network and the coordinators for your love, support and donations.

Due to this pandemic, which seems to be hanging on forever, we were asked to help Meals On Wheels of Wake County. Their representative Stephanie Thrum came to our sort on Saturday and helped pack up and weigh our donations to them. What a delight it was to meet her and hear more about the amazing work Meals On Wheels does in Wake County, serving over a thousand people.

As is always the case, we are grateful to everyone participating in this fight to arrest hunger and promote well being in our area. On a side note, we miss our “Charli’s Angels” of the Sigma Rho Zeta Sorority. We hope to be able to work with you all soon. Stay safe and well.

Amount collected:
Western Wake Crisis Ministry: 744 lbs
Meals on Wheels: 430 lbs
Total: 1,134 lbs
