North Raleigh Ministries
North Raleigh Ministries (NRM) serves people with financial needs living in seven zip codes in North Raleigh: 27604, 27609, 27612, 27613, 27614, 27615, and 27616. NRM is located in the Lowe’s shopping center at Strickland, Harvest Oaks, and Six Forks Roads. They operate a Crisis Center, Thrift Store, Food Pantry, Education Center for adult classes such as Jobs for Life and Faith in Finances, and a Community Garden (on site behind their center). They collaborate with the Interfaith Food Shuttle in its BackPack Program providing weekend food to Wake County students receiving free or reduced school lunches. Volunteer hours are flexible following participation in a brief orientation program. Volunteers choose tasks as varied as interviewing clients and gathering their financial data, sorting donations in the Thrift Shop, serving as a Jobs for Life mentor, supervising or stocking the Food Pantry or Thrift Store, data entry in Microsoft Office, and cleaning.
