On November 3rd, CHA held it’s 6th annual Heritage Project. This project allows CHA to raise annual operating funds while also providing service hours to local non-profit organizations to assist them in fulfilling their missions. This year, we committed ourselves to serving over 1,000 hours to help feed hungry families in and around our community by partnering with the Roanoke Rescue Mission, the Stepping Stone Mission of Franklin County, and God’s Provisions Food Pantry right here in Rocky Mount. In addition to our local food drive, we were able to assemble crews to assist the Franklin Faith Network in organizing and sorting donations and cutting and delivering wood to those in need.
Sherry Scott, Executive Director of the Franklin Faith Network said, “we were blessed to have the Christian Heritage students help us during their Heritage Project Day by cleaning, organizing and taking inventory in several of our storage facilities. Since we are a volunteer agency, we rely on the community to help support our mission. The Faith Network provides emergency services to individuals and family facing financial crisis’ and homelessness. Having the ability to keep inventory of our donations and organizing them will help us better serve our clients. The students were hard workers and we appreciate their efforts and service.”
Elementary students served on this day by visiting the Franklin Health and Rehabilitation Center to spread the love of Jesus through cards and songs to the residents.
