The Raleigh, North Carolina based Church in the Woods has a mission to help the homeless in Raleigh, NC. It was their call to action to Triangle churches years back that led to our participating with Hope Chapel (Apex, NC) in cooking and donating hot food once a month in Moore Square.
For the past five years, on the 4th Saturday of the month, we at Catering by Design, have contributed hot meals that members of Hope Chapel served to homeless men and women in downtown Raleigh.
Back when we became part of it, very few churches were involved, and for years we could see and feel the difference we were making. Through the years since we began participating with Hope Chapel, many more communities have become involved, providing a much wider and stronger base of support.
Over the past year, the community at Hope Chapel began to feel it may be time to turn elsewhere in service work, and so, on the last Saturday in September, we prepared our last hot meal to give to the members of Hope Chapel to serve at Moore Square.
We’re grateful for the chance to have been of service, and especially would like to honor the Church in the Woods for their leadership in this important ministry.
For everything there is a time and a season. We know the immense value of helping others, and hope that all of us, especially as the season of giving approaches, will find ways that we can give back.
Catering by Design is still donating food weekly to the Church in the Woods, food that was not needed at the many events we cater each week.
