MEET KATHY! 

Kathy Goldston has recently joined the Dorcas Ministries staff as our Client Services Program Assistant.  Kathy is a native North Carolina.  She studied English and Psychology at UNC-Greensboro.   Kathy is very passionate about music and sings in the First United Methodist Choir.   She is mom to Christopher and a cat, Poppy. 

When asked what she loves most about Dorcas, Kathy responded "I love the mission and what Dorcas stands for in the community.  I appreciate how this organization helps bridge the gap for clients facing either short term or long term needs."

Kathy's love of Dorcas runs deep. "In 2003, I was diagnosed with breast cancer as a single mom, and needed assistance. I was unable to work full time during that season of life and Dorcas was there for me.  Coming to work here as staff feels very full circle for me and I'm thrilled."

We are so excited Kathy has joined our team. If you see her around Dorcas, welcome her!  She can be reached at kathy@dorcascary.org or 919.469.9861, ext. 204. 
Food Assistance: Client Story
The perfect storm came in last week. Marie was making summer plans for her 4 school aged boys, but life had a different forecast.

Marie lost her job on Monday.

On Tuesday, she had to be rushed to Wake Med with chest pains. She was okay but the visit meant a pile of medical bills that she could not afford to pay.

It was a once-in-a-lifetime tornado of stress.

Her debt has snow-balled and she has been desperately searching for a job; the kids will be getting out of school for the summer soon, and she has no food to feed them.

That’s why Marie came to Dorcas.  She got help with her mounting bills. She was approved to shop in the food pantry until she could get back on her feet.

The storm clouds broke and she found a good-paying job in July. Praise God!

Today, Marie and the boys are doing well and looking forward to a new summer filled with sunshine!   Thanks to generous donations of healthy food, Dorcas is able to feed hundreds of families every summer.

 
Sometimes a little assistance goes a long way:
$50 stocks the Dorcas pantry with fresh apples for 2 weeks
$120 keeps our fridge stocked with eggs for 2 weeks
$200 helps feed a family of 4 for a week
Make a gift to help provide food for clients in need.
