Request For Donations

Matthews Ministry

Visit Matthews Ministry Facebook page.

If you would like to donate food items for the Matthews Ministry Backpack Program, below is a list of items put in every bag and could be donated:

  • A can of chicken
  • A can of soup
  • A can of veggies
  • Canned pasta sauce
  • A Chef-Boy-R-Dee item
  • A granola bar
  • Macaroni and Cheese
  • An oatmeal pack
  • A pack of crackers
  • Pasta and Ramen noodles

Then, we add at least two bonus items( peanut butter and jelly, rice, applesauce, cereal, etc). No glass items. If your church, neighborhood, civic group, or family wants to help now you can collect these items and have bags ready to go. When you have a set number of bags packed then email us and we will tell you where they need to go. If you choose to donate food directly to our building you can still leave it in the food drop off ( 8500 Oak Island Drive ) and monetary donations can be sent to P.O. Box 10761 Southport NC 28461. Credit card donations can be made on our PayPal account on the Matthews Ministry website and if you want to order food for us (and not leave your home) let us know the grocery store ordered from and we will have volunteers pick it up.

Brunswick Arts Council - Supplies for Masks Needed

Brunswick Arts Council (BAC) and fabric artists are firing up their sewing machines to make face masks for emergency responders and front-line service medical staff to help make Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) supplies last longer. The masks are donated for free to medical providers and others on the front line in response to COVID-19.

You can help in this effort in a variety of ways:

  • Donate fabric (must be 100% cotton)
  • Donate 1/4" elastic or 2mm elastic paracord or seam/bias tape
  • Donate thread (cotton or all purpose - any color)
  • Donate or lend a sewing machine (there are sewers ready to work that don't have machines)
  • Donate Cash

For more information please visit the BAC website or email Mary Beth at 910-448-1016.
