Star News: Food drives give back to communities in Pender and Duplin counties

Food boxes with ham or turkey and a variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, as well as personal protective items, were recently distributed in Burgaw.

Mt. Calvary Center for Leadership Development worked to give the food boxes in collaboration with the North Carolina Department of Health and Human Services and other supporters. A food drive was also held in Wallace.

Angela Castanon, of Willard, who received a food box stated, “I have heard about the good work that Mt. Calvary does and am so pleased to be able to receive a food box for the holidays. It is heart-warming to know that organizations such as Mt. Calvary step forward to try and provide resources to those in need. My work hours have been reduced due to the pandemic and it is really hard to be able to have everything you need for your family. The holidays would be a lot more difficult without the generosity of others.”

Mt. Calvary will continue to provide a variety of community health outreach and support initiatives, and offers numerous resources for those that maybe impacted by COVID-19. For more information, visit
