BLADENBORO –There will be a fundraiser to benefit Southeastern Carolina Crossroads at the Bladenboro Historical Building on Saturday, Nov. 21, from 4 until 7 p.m.
There will be barbecue plates which will cost $7 each and the meal is eat in or take-out.
Rev. Bruce Cannon, director of missions for the Bladen Baptist Association, said that there will also be homemade cakes for sale including Hershey Bar cakes and Pig Pickin’ cakes.
In addition, the men of Crossroads will have Adirondack chairs and other items for sale that they have made at the facility located on Susie Sandhill Road. Cannon said the facility has a woodworking shop on site and the men enjoy working with their hands and learning how to make the items. Cannon said the men of Crossroads will also be there to serve the meal, speak with those attending the fundraiser, and to give back to the community.
Cannon said Crossroads has been open since May 1 and has helped 63 people including those that are currently enrolled in the program. “A lot of lives have been changed,” said Cannon of the program.
He added that the program is also reaching out to families dealing with addiction to teach them such skills as setting boundaries and how to prepare themselves and their loved one to enter rehab.
Cannon said the men of Crossroads have been busy giving back to their community through such projects as helping with the flood recovery efforts in South Carolina and assisting with the construction of wheelchair ramps, to name just a few things.
For those who cannot attend the fundraiser, checks may be made payable to Carolina Crossroads and mailed to P. O. Box 2023, Elizabethtown, NC 28337.
