August 7 - Partnerships with Local Schools – If your church hasn’t adopted a local school to partner with, why don’t you do so as soon as possible. Not only do elementary and middle schools need partners, but also local high schools. In August, we encourage our churches to collect school supplies for the local schools. If you need a complete list, call or email Karen (336-830-8189 or karen@pmba.org.) We will be sure to get you the information. If you want to collect school supplies for our Food Pantry, we can certainly use them! Also, we have 3 multi-housing low income communities that we try to help during August.

Oct – Nov 10 - COATS for our STATE - This year, we are asking local churches to help us collect good used coats to be given out to our schools and nonprofit agencies that we partner with. Some will even go to the eastern part of North Carolina. Coats need to be separated: 1) men’s; 2) women’s; and 3) children. Make sure they are clean and in good condition. This year the Baptist State Convention is not doing COATS for the City (New York). So, we plan to collect coats as usual and take to areas in our own state that needs our help!
