Doing Good for Our Soles!

We were thrilled to receive a donation of boat shoes from The Laurel of Asheville lifestyle magazine and BANGS Shoes, an Asheville-based company that has the vision of providing footwear to cultivate a meaningful community with lasting impact. The shoes were donated to the Veterans Restoration Quarters and Steadfast House, where they will be perfect summer shoes for the homeless male veterans at the VRQ and the homeless women, including female veterans, and children at Steadfast. The fact that they're slip-ons is really important for our veteran residents who have disabilities.

Do you have or know of a business that wants to make an impact in our community? We'd love to hear from you! Email info@abccm.org or call (828) 259-5300. 

Join us for Blessing of the Bikes

Rain showers, flowers, and the roar of motorcycle engines - all signs of spring! Start off the riding season right and join us for the annual Blessing of the Bikes on Saturday, April 29. We'll be at Harley-Davidson of Asheville (20 Patton Cove Road in Swannanoa) from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

But it's not all about blessing bikes ... you can provide a blessing in return! We're collecting new packages of men's and women's underwear for the residents of the Veterans Restoration Quarters and Steadfast House.

We'll have live music from the Knuckleheads, food for purchase, and more. See you there!

Needs

Food  - Help us fill the  pantry shelves of our four Crisis Ministries – Steadfast House and Veterans' Restoration Quarters.
There is always a need for basic staples like flour, sugar, oils; peanut butter, but there is also need for solid protein with canned meats like chicken, ham, pork, tuna or fish.  

Household Items  We help people who have gotten on their feet with a good job and  housing as they leave Steadfast House and the Veterans Restoration Quarters  as they set up their new home.  They always need household items like, dishes, pots and pans, flatware, linens. We need tables and chairs, chests of drawers, beds – so they have something to eat on, sleep on and sit on. 

Please take smaller items to one of our
four Crisis Ministries or the Veterans Restoration Quarters.

Call 828.259.5323 for more information.

Medical Ministry   We need volunteers who can be organizers.  We are so blessed that we receive so many left over medical supplies – from bandages to glucometers to blood pressure machines to hard equipment like shower chairs, walkers and wheelchairs. 
We need organizers who would give some time, three hours once a week or three hours once a month to help organize and store these materials so they can be easily distributed to the hundreds we see each month. 
Of course, there is always a space for physicians, nurses, dentists and assistants, pharmacists and techs
along with administrative volunteers
Call Maia at 828.259.5339.

We have many opportunities available and  heartedly invite  you come and work with us in serving our neighbors in need.  Individuals, families, church groups, businesses, groups of friends .... all are welcome!
