Beloved Community

St. Philip’s Church Campus, Downtown Durham

First Annual

Beloved Community
Resource Fair & Picnic



If you live, work or worship in downtown Durham, you already know there’s a divide. We’re not talking about black and white or good and evil, but of the haves and the haves-not. Those who have a home, have food to eat, and have clothing to put on each morning. And those who have little or nothing.

Today’s economic downturn is producing more and more need in our community, for both individuals and for families. And with the school year (and school lunches) ending, families living on the edge face even more pressure to get through each day in the summertime.

This resource fair and picnic will provide opportunities to give help to those in need. Opportunities to get help from a variety of service and aid institutions. And opportunities to share a meal, conversation and music with a greater part of your beloved Durham community.

Become a part of it. Please join this celebration of community and faith. Volunteers are still needed—contact Rich Ball Damberg at 919.688.4141 or

Confirmed resource providers include Urban Ministries of Durham, Lincoln Community Health Center, Durham County Health Department, Latino Credit Union, Self Help Credit Union, and many other area churches and community organizations. There are opportunities for all to assist, even if only to welcome a stranger as you share a meal.

Give Help.
Get Help.
Find Hope.
