The Children and Family committee would like to invite you to join your neighbors to collect items for donation to help people in our community this Thanksgiving. We are collecting goods to donate to two places- the Free Market at the Open Table United Methodist Church and the Corner Pantry.
Free Market: The market is available on Wednesdays at Open Table UMC to those in our community and beyond that need a little help.
Corner Pantry: We would also like you to keep our neighborhood Corner Pantry in mind for donations as you are able. It is at the corner of Glascock and Watauga Streets. The Corner Pantry has been utilized a great deal since being built, especially these past few months, so please help us maintain inventory by dropping off non-perishable foods so we can help to keep it stocked.
As items are donated during November, our Children and Family Committee will fill the Corner Pantry and then donate the rest of the items to the Free Market.
The MCAC established a new Children and Family Committee in 2021! Members are David Watkins, Stacy Gant, and Jan O'Regan.
The mission of the MCAC Children and Family Committee is to facilitate and promote opportunities for children and families in our community to learn, volunteer and socialize with the goal of building and sustaining strong neighborly bonds.
The MCAC C & F Committee is new, and we've had a great start with several fun outdoor events that allowed families and kids to connect. We've hosted a bike safety clinic and neighborhood ride, a pollinator event at the Raleigh City Farm, the National Night Out/ Ice Cream social, and the October Scare Bears Scavenger Hunt.
