September Minute for Mission
The September 17 Minute for Mission will be presented by Susan Carroll Whitcomb for the Isabel Whitcomb Stay Strong Fund, established by the University of North Carolina Center of Excellence for Eating Disorders (CEED). Susan is continuing the work of her daughter, Isabel, to improve services for people struggling with eating disorders. This fund will create an ambassador’s program, with the vision of building an education and referral network in North Carolina, in order to provide children and families with evidencebased care for eating disorders in their home communities. You can learn more about Isabel’s journey and her hope to help others by reading her blog, https://grantmetheserenity98.blogspot.com/.
September/October Mission Baskets
The mission baskets in the side foyer and the Fellowship Hall collect donations of food for the North Carolina Central University Campus Food Pantry. They are located on the NCCU campus to serve students in need. Please help stock the pantry by placing donated non-perishable food items in the mission baskets. Contact David Heist (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions.
