Salvation Army Breaks Ground on New Facility

The Big Rock was proud to attend the ground breaking ceremony for the new Salvation Army facility in Morehead City, NC.

In 2017, The Big Rock Foundation presented The Salvation Army of Carteret County’s ‘Anchor the Army’ fundraising campaign with a $262,500 donation to help fund the construction of a 7,500 square foot Center for Worship and Service and an 11,000 square foot Family Store. The planned facilities have features that enable The Salvation Army to have a greater impact on Carteret County residents, such as a private social services office; larger food pantry with more efficient commercial cooler and freezer; large commercial kitchen for disaster service and collaborative feeding programs; a larger meeting area for community gatherings; a safer Family Store donations area; and a larger shopping space that can produce more funds to sustain increased programs and services.

In attendance were Big Rock legend sponsor, Randall Parker (left), Lt. Roland Lewis, Tournament Director, Crystal Hesmer and Big Rock board member and charity chairman, Tommy Bennett. (pictured above)
