Exodus Homes, a Catawba County United Way agency, will host a special “Everything Free” Community Outreach event on June 4, 2016 from 11:00am – 2:00pm at the Ridgeview Recreation Center 700 1st St SW in Hickory.
This will be a lively event with great music and testimonies of recovery from addiction and incarceration to encourage the community that people can learn a new way to live. Exodus Homes has been hosting “Everything Free” Community Outreach events for the past 19 years and many people have reached back for help as a result.
The “Everything Free” giveaway will include free furniture, TVs, clothing, Bibles, haircuts, manicures, birthday cakes, face painting for kids, with hot dogs and drinks for all who attend. Participants who want free furniture should come with a truck to take it home, or some people with trucks may be there willing to help deliver the furniture for a small fee. ALFA will provide free and confidential HIV testing with immediate test results during the event, and the League of Women Voters will offer voter registration.
The Hickory Branch NAACP will be present with opportunities for people to become members or renew their membership. Veterans Helping Veterans will have information about their fellowship, Piedmont Counseling and Development Group will be there, and Hospice will have helpful information about their services.
Exodus Missionary Outreach Church clergy will be available to talk one on one with people who need spiritual support and guidance.
