West Stanly Christian Ministries

Donations accepted Mon-Sat 8:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

You can ask for a receipt when dropping off your items, so your donation will be tax deductable.
November Food Bank Needs
Currently the highest needs for the pantry are:
Laundry detergent (small bottles)
Canned meats (chicken, tuna, spam, etc)
If possible, some half gallon cartons of milk
Boxed mash potatoes
Note from WSCM: 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.
WSCM Statement: "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
For the sake of comparison, they distributed over twice as much food in 2020 as in 2019. The holidays, schools on remote schedules, and general effects of COVID-19 have all caused unusual demands on the pantry. In the midst of that, there's been so many encouraging things happen. They were GIVEN over 300 lbs of smoked sausage which not only have they given out but also coordinated two different times where they simply cooked a free lunch for folks. They were also blessed with over 1200lbs of frozen chicken leg quarters. This all is in addition to their Second Harvest partnership that allows them to purchase food at discounted rates and the food that YOU help us with by donating.
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.
