Each August we host an internal food drive to restock our shelves from the busy summer months. We also hold a contest between churches/businesses to see who can collect the most poundage of food and win the famed "Canned Trophy". For the past two years Trinity Baptist Church as collected the most food. To find out more on this food drive, please visit http://www.thecornertable.org/parade-of-cans/.
Proceeds from our Christmas Candy fundraiser will feed hungry people all year long. Candy tins are $25 and include four types of homemade candies. Mailing boxes can be purchased for $1.05 each.
Candy tins include delicious Chocolate Fudge, White Chocolate Christmas Crackle (A Famous Salty Sweet Treat at The Corner Table), Peppermint Bark, and Peanut Butter Balls.
The Eastern Catawba County Hunger Walk is a community event benefiting the Eastern Catawba Cooperative Christian Ministry, Inc. and The Corner Table Soup Kitchen. The goals of this three-mile walk are to raise funds for hunger relief efforts in eastern Catawba County and to raise awareness of the hunger issue in our community. Your participation will ensure ECCCM and The Corner Table can keep feeding the 20% of families living with food insecurity in eastern Catawba County.
You can participate in multiple ways: walk, donate, and/or sponsor.
Awards are presented for the largest team and top fundraiser!
If you would like to support the event but don't want to walk you can become a Spirit Walker by simply making a donation, signifying you're with us in spirit on the day of the event. You can also sponsor the event. Sponsorship opportunities are offered at multiple levels with differing benefits. This is a great opportunity for your employer, church, civic group, etc. to make an impact on the community and get their name out!
Spread the word on social media by responding to and sharing the event on Facebook!
2017 Event is Scheduled for Sunday, October 15th!
If you are a citizen, church member, or business with a heart for seeing Catawba County NC flourish, we invite you to a life changing experience! After enjoying breakfast, you will be taken on a tour of 9 local agencies and hear speakers from a dozen more who serve children and adults in a multitude of ways. You will see firsthand how non-profit agencies serve our citizens by meeting their physical needs for housing, food, clothing but even more through their services of advocacy, education, enrichment activities, and health. The event provides lunch and the opportunity to connect with the hidden faces of citizens in our community. It would take weeks for you to collect the invaluable information offered on this one-day all-inclusive tour on your own; don’t miss this priceless opportunity.
Join us on Tuesday, October 24th 8am-4pm. Find us on Facebook under “iCare Tour Catawba County NC” or call (828) 695-5648 to inquire about the event or to register. Registration is required in order to attend. A $5 donation is suggested so we can continue to offer this event each year.
