DEAR FRIENDS and NEIGHBORS:                                                                       


Haywood Christian Ministry is participating with Emergency Resource Agencies in Haywood County to provide services to those in the community needing assistance during this pandemic. Most of our services, including utility assistance, rental assistance, heating, prescriptions, doctor, dental and vision, have been suspended.

Food Pantry:  Our pantry is now a “no contact drive-thru” service provided in our back parking lot.  Our Hours of Operation are Monday thru Friday from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. There are three things you can do to help: 1) please be patient, 2) stay in your car, and 3) have your trunk empty to provide space for us to place a food box.  If you are sick with any symptoms, please let us know immediately. Everyone will receive the same food box; looks can be deceiving, because we receive many different types of food product in varying containers.  Pet food is available, but it is not always in stock. We are not experiencing a food shortage, so please do not panic!


Utility Bills:  Please remember that even though your utility bills may be deferred for now (if you have made arrangements for such), but they will be due at some point.  Any “stimulus” money you may receive from the government should be managed wisely by you and directed toward utility/rent expenses, because the Ministry MAY NOT be in a position to help pay those bills for some time. These bills may be solely your responsibility, because we have no idea how long this pandemic may last.  Nutrition is our priority, and we are making every effort to keep the food pantry open as long as possible.  We wish to thank all those who are working around the clock to assist us in achieving that goal.

We have a great community, from the gentleman who dropped off a $5.00 “ donation to so many other giving individuals, as well as churches, whose members are raising funds and donating canned foods.  WE THANK ALL OF YOU!

Together, we can overcome any obstacle.  We pray for your well-being, and we pray that all of us can return to a more normal lifestyle soon.  Please refer back for updates.  Meanwhile, please follow health guidelines and stay safe.


In Christ,


Steven Nowakowski                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Executive Director                                                                                                 Haywood Christian Ministry
