Community Assistance

Community Assistance Ministry

Waldensian Presbyterian Church operates a food pantry and assists residents of Valdese and Drexel with a gift of groceries once a month. Volunteers are regularly needed to stock shelves, interview clients, and do the grocery shopping. Call the church office if you'd like to learn how to help!

If you are in need of our outreach and would like to receive assistance with your household meals visit us on a Thursday between the hours of 2 and 4 p.m. at the lower entrance of the church, near the playground. We require a valid I.D. as proof you live in our 'service district.' You may receive this assistance once a month, every 31 days.

In the event your family has experienced a crisis, we may offer financial assistance. This ministry is a case by case service and requires an appointment. Please call the church office on Thursday between 2 and 4 p.m. for a pre-phone interview and to schedule a follow-up appointment, if eligible. 

Waldensian Presbyterian Church can ONLY provide assistance on Thursday's between 2 and 4 p.m. -no exceptions.
