Crisis Control Ministry – Hope du Jour

On Tuesday, May 5, 2020, Crisis Control Ministry was to host its 30th annual “Hope du Jour” fundraiser, benefiting its programs and services provided to families throughout Forsyth County. Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the fundraiser is rescheduled for Tuesday, September 8, 2020.

Over 130 restaurants, bakeries, breweries and coffee shops in Winston-Salem, Kernersville and throughout Forsyth County come together to support Crisis Control Ministry by donating 10% of their proceeeds from the entire day to the organization.

“Hope du Jour has become a great tradition in our community,” said Margaret Elliott, Executive Director of Crisis Control Ministry. “With all of the restaurants being impacted by the Coronavirus and the stay at home order, we have jointly agreed to reschedule Hope du Jour for the fall. We
encourage people to support Hope du Jour partners still open by ordering takeout and gift cards.”

In lieu of Hope du Jour being on Tuesday, May 5, 2020, Crisis Control Ministry is hosting May of Hope that day encouraging people to order takeout from the Hope du Jour restaurants still offering takeout, curbside pickup, and/or delivery.
