Our SSC team turned into a WARM crew!
On February 8th, about twenty Spiritual Soul folks became a work crew, supporting WARM – Wilmington Area Rebuilding Ministries. We did yard work, replaced a water heater, helped repair an accessibility ramp … all in an effort to help to make a home more livable, comfortable, beautiful. Some of us formed a lunch team, taking sustenance to our workers who began early on a very chilly Saturday morning. It was a wonderful day!
We had a wonderful time supporting “Night to Shine.”
In January, Spiritual Soul Center joined with other church communities in Wilmington to support “Night to Shine 2020.” Our congregation collected about five full carloads of formalwear — evening gowns, dressy dresses and tops, suits and ties, shoes, jewelry and evening bags and more. These donations came not only from Soul Center families, but their communities and friends. A Soul Center Florist donated table arrangements. We felt very grateful for this opportunity to serve.
On February 7, Night to Shine created an unforgettable prom night experience, centered on God’s love, for people with special needs ages 14 and older. It was extraordinary, a living example of what love can do.
The holiday season was a great time to join up with the Food Bank.
On December 19th, 2019, twelve Soul Center volunteers showed up at the Wilmington Branch of the Central and Eastern Carolina Food Bank to help them in the work they do to serve those in our community who face hunger. We are so grateful for this organization, and we had a wonderful evening together making a small contribution to their important mission.
October was WARM … in more ways than one!
On October 5th, an eager band of SSC Volunteers joined in our first project with WARM – Wilmington Area Rebuilding Ministries. It was an impressive effort, with plenty of work to go around for everyone, regardless of their special skills, ambition, abilities, etc. It was an exhilarating day and so rewarding. We are grateful to partner with this fine organization.
Rise Against Hunger in early Fall
On Saturday, September 14th, 17 volunteers from Spiritual Soul Center worked with others from the Wilmington community at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church to package 10,000 meals that will be distributed to the world’s most vulnerable populations. It was a great day!
