The Alamance NAACP is excited to announce the expansion of our Fourth Sunday Community Supper to include a meal on the second Sunday of the month.

Our ongoing Fourth Sunday program, made possible by food donations from Johnny Bakatsias’s Western Charcoal Steak House, has served 40-60 participants each month, and has been an inspirational part of our Branch programming for several years now. We are doubling that effort through the generous donation of both time and resources by Life’s Journey UCC. We will now host the event twice monthly, on second and fourth Sundays, from 3:00-5:00 pm at the Bynum Center, at 331 E. Morehead St. Burlington, NC.

Our recent Second Sunday cook out on July 13th was an inspiration. While hamburgers, hotdogs, and many homemade dishes were enjoyed by all our guests, it was a true success because it provided more than a nourishing meal to our neighbors in need. This collaborative effort helped to further our bigger goal of doing more to promoting community fellowship.

Alamance NAACP and Life’s Journey UCC hope these meals can offer a friendly, informal atmosphere that will allow us a chance to build the relationships that are essential to strengthening our community for every member. We hope to invite  to these Community Suppers, not just those in need, but also advocates and leaders whose work would benefit from a chance to build stronger personal relationships with members from all parts of our community.

So if you would like to attend, have suggestions for people to invite, or have resources to help sustain or enlarge the program, please call Barrett Brown at 336.512.2898, Noah Read at 336.260.4399, or email to attentionalamance@gmail.com.
