Missional Service Opps
In addition to our regular Sunday morning serving slots, here’s a look at how we are serving our City this summer:
- Countdown to the Christmas Village Toy Store
- Cleaning our Neighborhood Streets
- Eat Produce, Fight Homelessness
The Christmas Village Toy Store is almost here!
The Christmas Village Toy Store will soon be providing affordable, new toys for neighborhood families to purchase for their children this Christmas. During November and early December, Warehouse will receive donations of new toys from area churches and businesses. Toy Store volunteers will then re-price the gifts by discounting their retail price, so we can stock the Store shelves with thousands of great gifts for working families to purchase. The profits from the Store are then reinvested into the local community through educational grants and scholarships. This is our way of offering a dignified alternative for families who want to give their kids gifts for Christmas.
> Bring your donations of new toys to Warehouse and put them in the toy collection barrels next to the arena kiosks.
> The Christmas Village Toy Store will be open Friday, December 13 and Saturday, December 14. Sign up to volunteer here.

Adopt-a-Street in Camp Greene
*Email us to sign-up and request more info. Our Warehouse Students have adopted nearby Camp Greene Street, and have completed their first serving dates cleaning up this important thoroughfare that cuts right through the neighborhood. If you would like to roll up your sleeves, and practically serve alongside the Students and the Neighborhood Association, email email@example.com to learn about the next serving date.
Eat Produce, Serve our City
go-go fresco is Charlotte’s first mobile, sustainable, missions-focused farmers market, and they are selling local produce at Warehouse 242 on Sundays, in-between services. Learn more by clicking here.
go-go fresco firmly believes that strengthening Charlotte’s communities can be as easy as grocery shopping. This is why 100% of their produce comes from local farmers, and 100% of their profits go directly into serving the city. Each month, all profits are directed to local service partners of Warehouse. So with go-go fresco, buying tomatoes, spinach and kale provides safe shelter for homeless children, after-school programs for at-risk youth, and job training for homeless men and women. By providing local produce and supporting missions to our city, every dollar stays in the local community. No exceptions.
go-go fresco will take cash as well as all major cards, and they will be sure to have a great selection of what is currently in season. And if you have a reusable bag, please bring it with you so we can keep their costs down, and ensure that more profits get invested into the city. Check out their Facebook for a list of what’s fresh. Eating locally never tasted so good!
