AYDEN, N.C. (WNCT) — There’s some good news about a nonprofit organization that serves military troops around the country and the world.
NC Support Our Troops will be moving to the Cross & Crown Christian Store in Ayden. The organization was evicted from its previous location. The group, formally known as NC Packs 4 Patriots, posted on Facebook on June 5 that the non-profit organization was being evicted and must move “as soon as possible.”
Barbara Whitehead, the founder of N.C. Support our Troops, said the donated space is a blessing.
“God leads you to the top of the cliff sometimes and tells you to jump, this was my jump and I was clinging to the top, so they provided the footsteps to jump off the cliff,” Whitehead said. “I’m so thrilled the mission can continue.”
The bookstore is also happy to have them.
“It’s our mission just to encourage people in general,” said John Hill, the CEO of the Free Will Baptist Press Cross and Crown Store. “This is the work they do and we believe in it. We want to be a part of it. We have this building God has blessed us with for many years and so this side is not being used, so what better way to use it to help somebody else.”
