Yadkin Christian Ministries in Yadkinville will soon be moving to a new location. David Frederick, site manager at the East Bend location, said the main office, which they had been in for close to 25 years, had long been insufficient. Frederick said the new site will be “bigger and better.”
“It’s bursting at the seams and this new building has 5,100 square feet, it is going to not only meet the needs of the ministry, but it has extra room,” Frederick said.
The new building which Yadkin Christian Ministries will be purchasing is the former Titus Construction Company building on Woodlyn Drive.
The larger space will offer a more comfortable waiting area for clients as well as more warehouse space which will make the volunteer’s jobs much easier in sorting and distributing the food, Frederick said.
Frederick added volunteers are always needed as are donations for the ministry. While many may think of donating to the food bank around the holiday season, Frederick said the need is year-round and summer can be a particularly difficult time for families with children out of school. He added that feminine hygiene products and personal care items are in great demand as well.
