We support this ministry and their needs through the financial donations received at Shiloh, and you can take a donation of items or food directly to their food pantry or thrift store.
West Stanly Christian Ministries is a Ministry located in Stanfield NC that helps people through certain situations. Below is a statement from their website, a list of things they help with, and a list of items needed in their food bank.
"We work hard to try and help folks through situations they may find themselves in. We provide help during critical times to those who have had some circumstances that merit intervention and assistance to help them through their temporary setback."
They offer help in some of these ways:
Food Assistance from their food pantry
Rent Intervention Assistance
Currently the highest needs for the pantry are:
Specialty Veggies (Collards, turnips, etc)
Soup (vegetable, cream of chicken, tomato)
Box Oatmeal (individual packets "just add water")
Pop Tarts (any flavors)
If you have any prayer requests or concerns, please let us know. We have a committed group of people that pray over needs on a regular basis.
We love you and we are thankful for you. We cannot wait until things normalize a little.
Note: When you are purchasing items for our pantry, it's much more efficient and effective for us if you purchase package sizes that are NOT the big "family size" containers. For us that stretches the number of families we can serve. In other words, we would rather serve three families with smaller containers of ketchup than one family with a huge one. This makes us be able to subsidize a family's grocery needs rather than be the "sole provider" of what they need. This holds true with cleaning supplies, detergents, cereal, and really all of the items we try and keep in stock for our neighbors in need.
You are also more than welcome to bring the little detail things that YOU use in your kitchen that are "go to" items you'd miss if you were out. This will make our efforts even that more impactful and the people we serve will continue to feel loved, appreciated, and more than just a statistic on a spreadsheet. They will actually feel like they matter. After all, they do, right?
The Bible says "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving." That's found in Colossians 3:23-24 and it is the litmus test for how we serve others. In other words, if we were to provide a food assistance to the Lord Jesus, what would that look like? Wouldn't it be our very best and wouldn't it reflect our love for Him and a level of excellence befitting a king? We sure think so and it's the methodology we use as we try and deliver our ministries to those in need.
