Buckhead Christian Ministry

Category: Community Outreach
Description: Holy Spirit Church supports Buckhead Christian Ministry with two food drives (January and June) and financial contributions from the monthly Collection for the Poor. Holy Spirit volunteers help transport food donations to the BCM food pantry during the January and June month-long food drives. In addition, volunteers help staff the monthly Collection for the Poor, usually held the 3rd weekend of each month. This ministry offers an opportunity to aid a valuable community outreach program with flexible volunteer opportunities.

The mission of BCM is to provide compassionate, emergency financial assistance to individuals and families in the Atlanta area. It places particular emphasis on clients' basic needs like housing and food, but also promotes programs that lead to long-term financial independence. BCM provides opportunities for all members of sponsoring churches and the community to live out the call to Christian service. Those parishioners wanting more hands-on volunteer opportunities should contact BCM directly at (404) 293-0058. BCM needs ongoing volunteer staff for its intake telephone workers, food pantry and thrift store assistants, computer data personnel, and general administrative support.
