Day #83: Give with the Crisis Center in Asheville, NC

Day #83: Give with the Crisis Center in Asheville, NC 1

Today we visited the Crisis Center, which is operated by The Asheville Buncombe Community Christian Ministry.

ABCCM has five different departments (Crisis, Jail, Shelter, Veteran, and Medical).

The Crisis Center exists for those who need immediate assistance. People come to the center whenever they lack food or clothing or if they need money for an unpaid bill.

One unique thing about ABCCM is that the organization is primarily supported by local churches. There are nearly 300 churches who provide material donations, monetary gifts, and volunteers.

If you are part of a church, does your church collaborate with other churches in your area to serve  your community?

Our family spent 2011 traveling the USA in an RV, striving to intentionally "give every day" for the glory of God. We interviewed CEOs of nonprofits and served alongside over 40 organizations and churches.

Our Pledge

We hereby pledge:

- To spend intimate, quantity time with our family.
- To actively help the poor, the sick, the lonely, and the helpless.
- To value, protect, and advocate for children.
- To de-emphasize the importance of “stuff” in our lives.
- To bring publicity to good causes and good people.
- To live with intentionality, as if this year was our very last.
- To observe the needs in our country/community – and then do something about them.
- To give – every day.
