Open Door in Waynesville has CRITICAL food shortage

The Open Door in Waynesville, NC is a ministry of Long’s Chapel United Methodist Church of Lake Junaluska, North Carolina, and is supported by community, churches, organization, and indivduals. Currently there is dire need of help. Recent appeals from volunteers there include reports like “never seen the food level so low”, “shelves are emply” and “we are unable to provide food baskets to those in need”.

Knights of Columbus Council 15085 of St John the Evangelist Catholic Church, through its Food for Families program will help provide some interim assistance while awaiting the results of the larger parish food drive. We are encouraging other local organizations to do the same.

On Friday, January 18th, 2013 from 9:30 am to 11:30 am, donations will be received at our meeting hall (the lower level of the old church at 234 Church St) to collect any non perishable food donations (spaghetti, soup, peanut butter, mac and cheese, tuna, canned veggies, etc) you may want to give. We will then bag up and deliver donations to the Open Door. Open Door can be reached DIRECTLY at (828) 452-3846 or (828) 456-9069 or

We pray for those in need and the generosity of the people of our loving community.
