The Basic Needs Drive is happening July 9th, 2022 at the MLK Center in Wilmington, at 401 S. 8th Street.

“All of us at LINC are grateful to have drastically increased our capacity to help empower men and women successfully reenter the Wilmington community after incarceration and become productive members of society with the addition of the Pathway Home Program. The upcoming Basic Needs Drive is an opportunity for people in our area to give back, invest in people and provide Second Chances.” Bryan Talbott Director of Development and Communications for LINC.
