THE FILLING STATION 107:5
The Filling Station of Pollocksville, NC along with its partners aims to:
Provide for the unmet spiritual, nutritional and development needs of Jones County, NC residents.
A MOVEMENT AS A RESPONSE TO PSALM 107:5:
The Filling Station is a community based not-for-profit outreach serving Jones County in North Carolina. The Filling Station was started by Pollocksville Presbyterian Church. Pollocksville Presbyterian – with community partners – determined to embody the vision of Psalm 107:5 by feeding our brothers and sisters with “bread and water”, and to provide opportunities for fellowship, education, and spiritual nourishment in a safe hospitable environment.
The goal of the Filling Station was solidified in the wake of Hurricane Florence and the devastation that wracked the county. Through this life changing experience the community bonded together to provide for the needs of the people of Jones County by providing services such as:
- Food Pantry
- Referrals and pairing people in need with available services
- Computer Lab
- Tutoring and mentorship
- Promotion of Healthy Living
- Community Garden
- Educational Classes including marriage/family/financial classes
