Sharing Dinner with Maple Court

Maple Court, supported by Volunteers of America, is a transitional housing program for homeless veterans. By partnering with local ministries, the program provides the material needs and support necessary for successful integration into the community. St. Luke’s has established a years long relationship with this community; in ordinary years we give them special consideration at our annual Spring Fling yard sale, prepare and serve a communal Thanksgiving dinner for residents, and purchase requested gifts for residents through Share Your Christmas.

This year, St. Luke’s is aiming to provide a $25 gift card to each of 24 veterans as part of Share Your Christmas. If funds are contributed in excess of the amount needed for gift cards, the money will be donated to Maple Court to buy food for their pantry from the Food Bank of Central and Eastern NC.

How to give:

To make sure we have time to purchase gift cards and get them to the veterans before Christmas, please make your donation to Maple Court Veterans by December 16.

Since support for the Maple Court Veterans comes initially to St. Luke’s, it is handled in the same way as the other St. Luke’s donations. You may make a single donation to one, several, or all of these funds, indicating how you want your overall donation to be split among them:

You may make your donation to these funds in any of the following ways:

  • Through ACS (indicate the amount directed to each fund in ACS);
  • Through PayPal (indicate the amount directed to each fund in the comment field);
  • With a personal check mailed to St. Luke’s (indicate the amount directed to each fund on your check).
