Assistance Ministry

A Note from CCAM Director:

The Corpus Christi Assistance Ministry provides emergency assistance to residents of Lexington County. We help pay electric, water and rent. We also have a small food pantry. Our food pantry is desperately low and we need your help. We need nonperishable food items, including canned foods, beans and rice, pasta and sauce, canned meats, peanut butter and jelly, and cereal. We also have a need for laundry and dish detergent and toilet paper. Items can be dropped off at the ministry office in the old church Tues-Fri from 9-12 or anytime into the drop box next to the building. We can always use monetary donations. Envelopes are available in the vestibule. Makes checks payable to CCAM. We also accept cash.

Corpus Christi Assistance Ministry reaches out to our church family and neighbors with food and financial assistance for rent, utilities and other needs. The Assistance Ministry is located in the old church. Volunteers assist clients with the process of applying for financial help and with the distribution of groceries. Ministry volunteers are always welcome and encouraged to work in our office one day per week or to assist in keeping the food pantry organized and up-to-date.

The Assistance Ministry also assists Corpus Christi Catholic Women with the distribution of gifts from the Giving Tree at Christmas, and with their annual school supplies drive. All of this is made possible strictly through the generous donations of money and non-perishable items from Corpus Christi parishioners.  For monetary donations, please feel free to use the envelopes provided in the vestibule of the church. The non-perishable donation box is located next to the statue of Mary outside of the old church.
