Christmas in July has become a tradition in the Statesville community. Usually held at the Civic Center, it cancelled last year due to COVID-19 and is modified for this year. This event helps support the mission to serve those who find themselves homeless and hungry or victims of domestic violence/sexual assault.
Fifth Street Ministries is the only provider of these services in our region (Davie, Iredell, Surry, Stokes and Yadkin counties).
This year, Christmas in July will be held on Sunday, July 18, from 12 to 1:30 p.m. at the Fifth Street Ministries campus (1421 Fifth Street). The organization will host a drive-thru lunch for $10 per plate. Additional donations will be accepted and appreciated. Each pick up will include a guest story so that community members can learn more about the mission of Fifth Street and the guests served by the nonprofit. Guests will also be helping the day of the event along with other volunteers.
