WINSTON-SALEM — Crisis Control Ministry is hosting its 25th annual Holiday Honor Card fundraiser from Nov. 1-Dec. 20. For a minimum tax-deductible donation of $5 per card, Crisis Control Ministry will beautifully hand address, stamp with a holiday stamp, and mail high-quality holiday cards to your loved ones. All proceeds from card purchases support the work of Crisis Control Ministry; providing emergency assistance services to residents of Forsyth and Stokes counties.

“Finding enough time to honor all of your friends, family, and other loved ones during the holiday season can be tricky, so we hope to make your gift-giving a little easier this year,” said Margaret Elliott, executive director of Crisis Control Ministry. “People love our holiday cards because they’re a meaningful gift that honors the recipient while also benefitting people in our community.”

Two design options are available — one by local graphic artist Beth Jones and one by renowned Greensboro artist William Mangum. For 34 years, Mangum’s Honor Card program has raised over $6 million for various organizations that assist individuals and families across the state struggling with poverty, hunger and homelessness.
