Due to the rise in transmission of COVID-19 and the prominence of the highly contagious Omicron variant in Mecklenburg County, Crisis Assistance Ministry is temporarily suspending all in-person volunteer opportunities beginning January 8, 2022, and temporarily suspending receipt of donations at our Donation Drive-Thru and Furniture & Appliance Store beginning January 12, 2022
To better serve customers and donors, Crisis Assistance Ministry’s Furniture & Appliance Store is returning to the agency’s main location at 500-A Spratt Street in Charlotte this month. To help with the move, the agency will pause accepting furniture and appliance donations between October 17 and October 26, 2021.
