NonFood Pantry     

Most people have no idea that Food Stamps cannot be used to purchase nonfood items. So what does a person do when they need these things? Here are a few reactions from client at Servant’s Heart NonFood Pantry…

A man in his mid-thirties dropped to his knees and sobbed when he was asked to select the brand of toilet paper he wanted for him and his sons.

  • An older woman had her own little party, jumping up and down and twirling around in the bleach area stating, “I can finally clean my floors”.
  • A single mom’s eyes filled with tears knowing that her teenage daughter will have shampoo and conditioner to wash her hair and lotion for her dry skin.

Oh, the things we take for granted. Clients select a 1-month supply of nonfood items. A family of 4 leaves with a minimum of $172 in product.

❤$88,985 of nonfood items were given for 2,031 people over the past 3 years.

Emergency Food Pantry      

There is little to no food in the house. The money that was expected simply didn’t come. The Food Stamp card is exhausted and it will be another week or so before the next allotment. Children are irritated and unfocused because they are hungry and cannot sleep. Adults give their portion of food to their children, falsely assuring them that they ate at the office or that they’re just not hungry. When we say we are “out of food”, that typically means we don’t have our “go to favorite” foods in the pantry. When clients say they are out of food, there is literally no food in the house.

  • Many moms have requested clothing for themselves because of the extreme weight loss due to lack of food in their home.
  • A single mom gathered all electronic devices in her home that could be pawned so she would have money for groceries.

In America, how does this happen? Here’s what we do to help:

Clients who need food select groceries from among mostly nonperishable food items. There is no reason clients and their families should be hungry while awaiting a trip to a local full food pantry. Our pantry supplies enough food for 4 – 7 days depending on their situation.  

❤$25,660 of food items were given to feed 892 people over the past 3 years.

BillPay Assistance

Launched July 2019, the initial focus has been assisting people with past due electric bills and disconnection notices before disconnection occurs. There is real satisfaction paying expenses related to higher paying jobs for our clients (e.g.: CNA Exam and RN exam fees).

❤Assisted 98 families with $21,490

For most of us, a power outage is an inconvenience – no lights, TV or computers for the rest of the evening – but for our clients it’s the loss of all frigerated foods, already a valued commodity. Replenishing refrigerated food is expensive. Additionally, folks who rent via Section 8 risk losing housing if their electricity is disconnected. This is how the loss of electricity short-circuits the ability to remain housed.

Will you be a “LifeNet” for someone in this community?

A “ Life-Net” = $10 each month. Can your $10 really make a difference? Imagine if 1000 people in our community committed $10 every month to this program. ❤That would allow Servant’s Heart to give $10,000 a month in financial assistance…and that makes a huge difference for lots of people!

Student School Supplies

One way to change the trajectory of a child’s future is to give them the proper tools today. None of us can perform our responsibilities very well without the right supplies. Let’s make sure all kids have what they need for academic success. Planning for this program begins in June.

New book bags filled with new school supplies are distributed to students and schools along with classroom and administrative provisions to all 9 Mint Hill schools.

❤$47,110 was given in three years in an effort to boost our local academic standing and give our children the right tools for the job.

We need:

  1. Individuals or groups to purchase bookbags and the list of supplies (we provide the list)
  2. Individuals or groups to purchase classroom/administrative list of supplies (we provide the list)

Turkey Tuesday

A holiday that requires one gift:  A thankful heart. Let the abundance of your thankful heart help someone realize that they, too, have many reasons in life to be thankful. 

Clients receive groceries for a traditional Thanksgiving meal to prepare the way they like to eat it based on the number of people who reside in their home. Each family also receives an additional $15 grocery gift card to complete their feast.  Planning for this program begins in September.

❤ $39,620 fed 1,666 people Thanksgiving dinner since 2016

We need: 150: $15 grocery gift cards from Food Lion

Christmas Assistance Program

The house is filled with excitement on Christmas morning as children rush to see their gifts beneath the tree. Christmas morning: It’s the most desperate time of the year for hundreds of our clients. Every child should feel valued, special and loved. Be a hero to parents and children this Christmas. They may not know your name but they will never forget what you did.

Clients select up to $100 in new toys for each child up to 12 years of age in their home. And because teenagers are more difficult for whom to select gifts, clients are given $75 in gift cards to Target or Walmart per teenager/college student in the home for a shopping trip. This program is initiated in September for execution in December.

❤$94,271 of new toys and clothes were given for 1,218 children people over the past 3 years.

We need:

  1. New toys/items age appropriate for children 0 -12 years of age (most needed 8-12 years of age)
  2. $25 or $75 gift cards from Target or Walmart
