Food Pantry / Food Distribution Center

Food Pantry & Food Distribution Center

Hope Community Church hosts a food pantry, at our Raleigh campus, on Mondays, 10:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. and Wednesdays, 5:00-7:00 p.m. It’s open to the public. Volunteers are needed to help provide food, prayer and to share the love of Jesus Christ with every one that walks through the door.

The Food Distribution Center is where Bumper Crop food goes each month to help supply the needs for our Food Pantry and BackPack Buddies ministries. The Distribution Center is at the Morrisville campus, and we need volunteers once a month to sort the supplies. This is a great opportunity to serve with kids seven years and older, or even as a Small Group!

Please note that volunteer times start and end before and after the times above. View the opportunities

Homework Club

HomeworkHomework Club

The Homework Club provides free one-on-one tutoring for school aged children on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:15 p.m. – 5:30 p.m at the Raleigh campus and on Tuesdays from 4:15 – 5:30 p.m. at the Apex campus. This classroom tutoring environment helps students with various subjects, homework assignments, and test preparation. Volunteers are needed at both campuses, and if you know of any students in need who cannot afford tutoring, share our Homework Club ministry with them!

Note for 2019 tutoring: We’re blessed to have enough tutors for the 2019 school year. At this point, please focus your attention on connecting under-resourced kids (K — 12th grade) who need this free service to our ministry.
