Annual Plant and Herb Sale
Every Spring Phoenix Mission holds it's annual plant sale from Easter Weekend until June 1st. Our Spring plant sale is a main fund-raiser we do annually to replenish the supplies that are needed for the Local Homeless Veterans and to support Early Bread at : Church of St. Peter the Fisherman. Early Bread serves a hot breakfast and prayer every Sunday to local Homeless, anywhere from 100 to 150 each and every Sunday since 1998.
The sale of Rose's , Fresh Herbs, Vegetable Plants and flowers can be bought during this time. Locations vary will be posted below on this website. Our first plant sale will be at the Coastal Honor Challenge on 3/24
As the end of Spring approaches, we request and encourage donations of the items listed on our Winter Outreach Page. We continue to grow and distribute more backpacks each year and support is always needed. Since 2016 our distribution # grew to well over 300 in Southeastern North Carolina, from November through January. Each year the need and number who need help grows.
It is only through the generosity of our supporters that we can make this small difference to help the Veteran's and those in need.
