Support the community with So Fresh and So Clean Saturdays
WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Local organizations have joined forces to help encourage and give back to those in our community who need it most.
Support the Port Foundation, Inc. and Vigilant Hope team up every third Saturday of the month for “So Fresh and So Clean Saturdays”. From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. or until supplies last, those in need of a haircut, hot shower, food or clean clothes can come to Greenfield Lake and be helped out free of charge.
“We want to come out and give a helping hand,” Founder and Executive Director of Support the Port, Cedric Harrison said. “[So Fresh and So Clean] reminds us to be appreciative of all the things that we may have in our lives that we may take for granted”.
This weekend, Support the Port is also hosting a free Farmers Market Pop Up Shop in conjunction with Nourish NC. From 10 a.m.-1 p.m. homeless neighbors and those affected by the fire at Everybody’s Supermarket are welcome to come to the corner of 8th and Greenfield Street. NourishNC will provide a FREE Farmers Market with thousands of pounds of farm fresh produce. The event will have a DJ, free hot breakfast, health related activities, kids activities, action-oriented resources and more.
