Mitchell County Shepherd’s Staff
Spruce Pine, NC 28777
Details: In October of 1983 a vision was born giving new hope for those in need in Mitchell County. A concerned group of citizens realized a need for a ministry to help the desperate and less fortunate. Mitchell County Shepherd’s Staff was founded to fulfill that need. Over 28 years later, that vision is still growing and providing assistance throughout the county. Many of the individuals Mitchell County Shepherd’s Staff serve are seniors on a fixed income. Nationwide, more than 6 million seniors face the threat of hunger, and the number is growing. In 2014, Mitchell County Shepherd’s Staff served approximately4,900 individuals and provided 2,500 boxes of food to those in need. Shepherd’s Staff also helped 26 clients with heating assistance totaling $8,000.00.
