Fifth Street Ministries will hold its 22nd annual Christmas in July event on Sunday, July 17, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

This year’s event will be a drive-thru lunch on the campus of Fifth Street Ministries, located at 1421 Fifth Street in Statesville. Plates are $10 each and include pesto chicken, pork loin, broccoli slaw, potato salad, roll and dessert. Cash or check only.

Christmas in July will also include an online auction that will begin at noon on Friday, July 8. To see the auction once it is live, please visit the “Events” tab on the Fifth Street Ministries website.

Christmas in July began as a way to increase donations during the summer months when giving slows.

Though it is summer, the needs continue and the services provided are just as needed. Donations help support programs for those most in need, including shelter services, Community Kitchen, My Sister’s House, Veterans Transitional Housing and the PATH house.


To help support the individuals and families served at Fifth Street, visit www.fifthstreetministries.com/donations/ and choose “Christmas in July” or checks may be mailed to P.O. Box 5217, Statesville, NC 28687.
