Raeford Community Food Pantry
We offer a monthly food distribution on the 3rd Thursday of every month from 4-5.  This distribution is available to anyone. We have recently partnered with Second Harvest Food Bank in Fayetteville, giving us access to a warehouse full of food for lower prices. 

Our food pantry is currently collecting the following items for distribution:        
Canned Meats (Treet, Stew Beef, Vienna Sausage, Chicken & Dumplings, Potted Meat, Tuna, Canned Chicken, Corned Beef, Salmon), Spaghetti, Spaghetti Sauce, Peanut Butter, Jelly, Rice, Grits, Oatmeal. Canned Beans, Canned Vegtables, Canned Fruits. Monetary gifts welcome. Please remember all items need to be in plastic or cans, no glass containers. Monetary gifts are also appreciated. 
 
 
Sierra Leone Food Buckets
Last year, the Mission & Ministry Team collected over 40 buckets of food for families in Sierra Leone, Africa that were effected by the Ebola virus. The buckets included oats, flour, rice, oil, dried beans, dried milk, and canned meat. 
 
 
 
Discretionary Fund
Donations are needed for our church's Discretionary Fund.  This fund makes it possible for our church to help those within our community who need financial help with bills, medicine, or other emergencies.  The Department of Social Services refers these individuals and families to us.  If you care to donate to this worthy cause simply designate your check for the Discretionary Fund.
  
 
 
School Supplies Needed
 United Methodist Women are always accepting donations for Hoke County students and teachers. We work year round to make sure they always have what they need! 
 
 
 
Christmas Angels

Thank you to everyone who contributed to our annual angel tree.  Because of your generosity we were able to give three gifts to about 50 different foster children here in Hoke County.  That's 150 gifts!  What a wonderful blessing!
