AL ACTION! Week event, February 22 – 27th. Food Drive

Due to the current shortage of federal support, because the federal program is running out of money, the local food pantries are struggling to keep up with demand. This year the greatest demand needed in our community is to feed those who have lost income and work due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Hurricane Matthew Relief Project

 

Our amazing volunteers are creating quilts for the victims of Hurricane Matthew who are still displaced in Princeville, NC.

Many of our volunteers were concerned when they heard that over 100 families from Princeville NC had still not returned to their homes following Hurricane Matthew flooding in October 2016. Consequently, we took action!

After contacting the town offices, we discovered that the displaced families needed kitchen items, linens and towels. Assistance League members committed to making fleece blankets, creating handmade quilts and collecting towels & kitchen items to donate.

Dee & Mike were very appreciative when we dropped off items in the Conetoe
Distribution Center located at 100 S. Canal Street. Overall, we were able to donate 31 fleece blankets, 23 handmade quilts, 4 knitted throws, 15 sheet sets, many towels, various kitchen items and miscellaneous cleaning & hygiene products.

Our volunteers continue to amaze us by demonstrating “Caring and Commitment in Action” each and every day!
