East Stokes is supported mainly by approximately 50 churches in the area, individual contributions, area businesses, various food drives through the schools and scouts, and the profits from the thrift store. Salvation Army also works with us for Share the Warmth and FEMA money distributed occasionally through out the year when available to aide residents in fuel and electric bills.
Additionally we try to help families at the Christmas Holiday. During this time area churches and businesses donate gifts and we let the parents pick out gifts for their children. When school begins to start we also help with back to school supplies. We fill about 100 backpacks or bags with school supplies and give them out to those in need who could not afford them.
