The Coalition provides a standard food package designed to feed a family for five days. Our food pantry is stocked through donations received from our Covenant Churches and the community or purchased from a local grocery distributor. Despite the tremendous donations received, last year we spent over $75,000 to purchase additional items.

Seasons change in the Sandhills and children grow, seemingly overnight. The Coalition provides seasonally appropriate, basic clothing for adults and children. Linens, including sheets, towels and blankets can also be requested. Donations are received at The Coalition Resale Shops Monday through Saturday and appropriate items are sent to Client Services for distribution. Clients may also receive vouchers to shop for additional items at The Resale Shops.
One of the greatest challenges for low income residents of Moore County is transportation. The Coalition offers daily transportation from our client services building to Carthage at 9 am. Client may call by 11 am for a return ride. We also offer transportation to the Social Security Office in Sanford and the DMV office in Aberdeen once a month. Reservations are required for all transportation and space is on a first come/first served basis.
Thanks to the tremendous support received from throughout the community, the Coalition is able to offer financial assistance for life's basic necessities. Each client's situation is reviewed by a trained volunteer screener who determines their eligibility for assistance. Clients must be a resident of Moore County in order to receive any Coalition services.
