Brown Bag Ministry
Apex, NC 27502
Details: Our Mission: To provide to those marginalized; food, water, clothing, shelter, and friendship, to counsel them on becoming independent, and to be vocal advocates for those who do not have a voice. The mission must be supported with a well-organized, growing, financial sound ministry. The beginning of the Brown Bag Ministry is a very interesting story of how the thoughts and prayers of two people, Patricia Hartley and Mary Jo Bukowski, followed in response to the Cursillo message of the Apostolic Action in our environment. The Hearing of "Feed the poor....." has driven these two special women since early 2005. Initially 25 bag lunches were prepared in Patricia's kitchen and delivered to one location in Raleigh. This ministry has now grown to over 2,700 bags delivered to multiple locations and the preparation of a hot meal twice per month. This ministry has provided blessings to many people - not only those being served, but reaching abundantly to those doing the serving. Our Ministry touches the lives of many organizations. The Knights of Columbus, Y-Guide Tribes, Scout Troops, and various church groups have begun to volunteer with Brown Bag Ministry on an annual basis. The preparation and distribution provide important life lessons to these children. The Brown Bag Ministry has also developed "Specialty Bags" which consist of basic necessities, such as soap, wash cloths, toothpaste, toothbrushes, just to name a few. These bags are now distributed on a regular basis to the less fortunate in our area. The response from our community has been wonderful. We are so grateful for all of the donations and offers of support for this ministry for without the efforts of our community we could not fulfill our obligation to help those in need.

Western Wake Crisis Ministry

We are glad to provide a helping hand to residents who are having a temporary or long term crisis that impacts their ability to provide for their basic needs.
