Bring Your Cans to Church

Bring your non-perishable food items to our Little Free Food Pantry by the entrance on Horne Street!

Fairmont has for many years collected cleaning supplies, hygiene products, and similar items for crisis intervention at Urban Ministries. Stay tuned as this program begins again!

Lunch Bag Ministry

On Tuesdays and Thursdays Fairmont distributes lunch bags to our hungry neighbors, many of them experiencing homelessness. Supplies for the Lunch Bag Ministry are always needed! We need pop-top meats and fruit cups, juice boxes or similar beverages, crackers, cereal bars, and any other type of single-serve lunch items! Thanks to Sunday School classes and small groups who assemble these bags.

Helping Families at Christmas

Each year Fairmont gets the names of 15-20 families from Family Promise of Wake County to help them during the holidays with a food basket and gifts. Individuals or groups can volunteer to help one or more of these families contact the church office.

Gleaning

We “glean” sweet potatoes and other produce each fall with the Society of St. Andrew.

Healing Transitions of Wake County

This program is currently on hold due to COVID-19. Since June of 2001, we have used our 14-passenger minibus to transport men of the Healing Place for Men (now Healing Transitions) to Sunday Night Live and back again, following the 12-step meeting held at the church. It has been a joy to be a part of the team, helping our neighbors experience recovery and a new way of life.
