3/17/20: Urban Ministries of Wake County Pivots Operations in Response to COVID-19 Pandemic
In an effort to protect our patients, pantry shoppers, volunteers, and staff, we are closely monitoring the Covid-19 situation and might need to modify our operations regularly.
As of 3/17/20, our building at 1390 Capital Boulevard is open but the doors will be locked.
Only pre-screened patients without family members, children, or guests will be seen.
If for some reason you have not received a phone call prior to your appointment, please call our appointment line at (919) 746-0101.
At this time we will NOT be honoring FIGS Prescription refills. We will update you if that changes.
The clinic and pharmacy will be closed WEDNESDAY EVENING (3/18/2020) AND THURSDAY EVENING (3/19/2020).
The pantry is operating each day starting at 9 am, but we are serving clients in their cars. Hours are subject to change depending on food supply.
We are NOT accepting individual or food drive donations at this time. The best way to give to us is through a monetary donation so that we can purchase our food from the Food Bank of Central and Eastern North Carolina.
We are still taking volunteers if they are well. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Helen Wright Center for Women (shelter) is operating as usual.
(This information was released on 3/17/20. Information is subject to change.)
