Setting out to Fight Hunger
PORCH WesternWake is an all-volunteer, grassroots hunger relief organization. We collect food and cash donations through monthly neighborhood food drives, and then distribute food to hundreds of at-risk families in our community.
We started as a group of women in Cary who got together every month or so to network, chat and have good old fashioned girl time. We are all business/working women in one profession or another (lawyer, designer, teacher etc.) that have lived in Cary for a number of years and are all now in our … hmmm… in our … 40s, 50s and 60s! In other words, we are still young, and at the same time we are old enough to know that we still have a lot we CAN and want to do and accomplish.
WesternWake Crisis Ministry
Western Wake Crisis Ministry is located in Apex. We give them non perishable food products, personal care items, cleaning and paper goods.
National Guard Family Program
We provide between 10 and 20 boxes per month on a needs basis. These are given to returning soldiers, deployed soldiers families and disenfranchised veterans.
Our donations to InterAct vary with availability of our monthly donations. They usually consist of juice boxes, individual fruit cups and apple sauce, can goods and personal care items.
