Baptist Children’s Homes of NC

At Baptist Children’s Homes (BCH), boys and girls equate food with love. These children, who have gone without, know that they are loved when an adult ensures they have plenty to eat. Boys and girls know that North Carolina Baptists, like you, care about them when they see the food you collect for the annual Food Roundup.

How does the Food Roundup Help?

Each year churches, businesses and other community members unite for the Annual Food Roundup which allows hundreds of boys and girls living at Baptist Children’s Homes to have their bellies well-filled.

What is the impact?

When children see trucks full of food pull into our statewide locations, they see God’s love in action. Being part of the Food Roundup is not only about collecting food — it’s about shining the light of Jesus into the darkness for boys and girls.

What is this year’s goal?

The goal is to collect $400,000 in nonperishable food, supplies and gift cards. Gift cards are extremely helpful in purchasing perishable food items. This equals approximately 700,000 meals and snacks.

How can I help?

Promote and collect throughout the month of April. You can deliver your collections to MBA’s Great Commission Center. BCH will pick up donations at the beginning of May (date TBD).

The heart of Baptist Children’s Homes (BCH) beats with a rhythm of hope that extends to children, families and adults throughout 21 North Carolina communities and an orphanage in Guatemala. For each person’s distinct need, there is a unique BCH service ready to help.

A nonprofit, BCH provides a variety of services including caring homes for children, supportive homes for single mothers and their children, caring homes for special needs adults, quality weekday education for boys and girls, and loving support for the frail aging.

It is our privilege at Metrolina Baptist Association to serve alongside BCH and help carry out the mission of sharing hope…changing lives.
