The Hope Calendar

The Hope Calendar is an ongoing campaign which will help provide nearly 100,000 meals in Jeannie's Kitchen over the next year. Won't you consider sponsoring a meal in honor of someone special in your life? Sponsor a supper in honor of a dear friend or breakfast in memory of a beloved relative.

More than 24,000 men, women, and children in Rowan County have trouble putting food on the table. They live in constant uncertainty, not sure where their next meals will come from. Your gifts keep Jeannie's Kitchen operating 7 DAYS A WEEK, 3 MEALS A DAY. Rowan County citizens who have a home but struggle to make ends meet are welcome to enjoy a hot noon meal. 

When you give a gift of $50 of more, you will receive our 2018 HOPE Calendar, a wonderful tradition enjoyed by friends of Rowan Helping Ministries. Contact Karen Taylor at 704-637-6838 ext. 100 or email ktaylor@rowanhelpingministries.org for more information or to become a sponsor today!

 

Why Give In July 2017

The answer is Alice and Jack.
For some, July means summer vacation. For many others in Rowan County, like Alice and Jack, it means struggling to make ends meet. 
Last month, 75-year-old Alice asked Rowan Helping ministries for help purchasing a window air conditioner because the central air system in her home was broken and she could not afford to fix it. While the intense heat of summer can prove to be troublesome for everyone, it was having an especially negative impact on Alice's asthma. With the help of caring individuals and donors like you, Alice received a voucher to purchase a window unit to keep her cool and improve her breathing. 

Now that school is out, Jack's kids are home for the summer and the bills have doubled. With more mouths to feed and bodies to wash, Jack began to wonder how he could possibly afford his growing grocery and water bills. Rowan Helping Ministries offered financial assistance for the family to prevent their water from being disconnected. They were able to get groceries from our Food Pantry and eat lunch in Jeannie's Kitchen to make their income stretch further.


Our annual "Why Give in July" Campaign is designed to raise funds to help neighbors like Alice and Jack when they are in need.

Last summer donations to this campaign helped:

  • 885 families with $215,000 in financial assistance. This included rent assistance, utilities, medical, dental, prescription medications and other needs.
  • Families make 250 visits to our Food Pantry to keep from going hungry
  • Clients make 1380 visits to our Clothing Center to help their income stretch further


Please consider donating any amount to Rowan Helping Ministries so that we can make a difference for people like Alice and Jack!
Checks can be mailed and made payable to:
