In today’s polarized world, it is refreshing to hear of a non-profit that, as part of their mission, respects “all beliefs". Interfaith Assistance Ministry (IAM), organized originally by local churches, the synagogue and the Hendersonville Ministerial Association, is exactly that: an interfaith non-profit organization that believes in diversity and nondiscrimination providing assistance to Henderson County residents since 1984.
For the 3rd year in a row ABE is participating in the Coats for the Cold - Donate a Coat drive for Western Carolina Rescue Ministries. Our goal is to fill that barrel to the top!
We'll be collecting winter outerwear for the homeless and others in through October 31st. New and gently used winter coats and heavy winter mittens, gloves, and hats can be dropped in the barrel located downstairs at our Sweeten Creek location.
When ABE marketing specialist Brenda Cooke realized she didn't need the brand new 65-cup coffee urn in her kitchen, she didn't have to look far for a recipient: ABE client/ non-profit Hendersonville Rescue Mission serves hot coffee to the homeless in their Day Center, just one of many services they offer to those in need.
