WWCM Summer Stock Up

Western Wake Crisis Ministry

WWCM needs our help in stocking the food pantry shelves.

The number of families using the food pantry has increased from around 250 to around 400 families per month. WWCM knows that demand will again increase over the summer because children who usually receive free or reduced lunches during the school year go without when school is out over the summer.

To meet these needs, WWCM is running a food drive from May 1 to June 9, hoping to receive 75,000 pounds of food from the Apex community at large. Apex UMC has a goal of donating at least 1000 pounds during the food drive. All non-perishable food donations are appreciated.

Items most needed are: Pasta Sauce (Hunts, Ragu, etc.), Dried Pasta, especially spaghetti noodles, Cereal/Oatmeal/Pancake mix and Syrup, Canned Meat (tuna, chicken, spam, etc.), Macaroni and Cheese, Canned tomatoes and tomato paste, Peanut Butter and Jelly, Canned Fruit, Canned Vegetables, Beans – canned or dried, Ramen/Rice, Side dishes (potatoes, rice, pasta), Baking items, Snacks, Paper Towels, Hygiene Items (soap, shampoo, toothpaste, etc.). Please help out if you are able. Any and all donations are appreciated! Place your donations in the bins marked WWCM outside in the Crossroads traffic circle.

Thank you for partnering with Western Wake Crisis Ministry in supporting our neighbors.
