WMPC supports many local agencies and ministries through financial gifts, donated items and volunteers. Types of agencies include at-risk children and youth, housing, hunger/crisis intervention, special populations and self-help groups. Some of these ministries are supported on our church campus. Others are supported at the ministries’ locations.
The Community Grants Committee of White Memorial Presbyterian Church allocates funds given by the congregation to agencies in Wake County that provide for the needs of individuals and groups in the community where our church has strong commitment and involvement.
