Robeson County United Way
Each year United Way of Robeson County partners with the NC Balance of State Continuum of Care to survey homeless individu-als in our Southeast Region. Lumberton Christian Care Center serves as one of the locations for the 2018 Point In Time (PIT) Count which will take place on Wednesday, January 31, 2018 from 7pm to 12 midnight.
United Way is looking for items to distribute to the homeless dur-ing the PIT Count. Trinity Church can be involved by bringing motel soap, shampoo, and other small toiletries. The Youth will bag these items into hygiene kits for the homeless. There is a box in the Parish Hall to collect these items. We can also collect gen-tly used or new hats, scarves, gloves, socks for distribution. For additional information, please contact Dencie Lambdin 738-7773.
