In 1988, North Carolina artist William Mangum created the first Honor Card for Greensboro Urban Ministry. The image, “Not Forgotten,” sold 5,000 cards and raised a record-setting $52,000. Since then, the Honor Card Program has raised more than $4 million to support Greensboro Urban Ministry’s guests who are experiencing homelessness, hunger and poverty.
This year’s Honor Card, “Hope in Front of Me,” is inspired by Psalm 9:18: “God will never forget the needy; the hope of the afflicted will never perish.”
During the holiday season, Honor Cards are available for a minimum donation of $5 apiece. You can purchase cards online or at participating stores (please see below). You can share cards to friends and family to let them know that a gift has been made in their honor to support Greensboro Urban Ministry’s work in the community.
Thanks to the generous support of the Wells-Fargo Foundation and Michael and Sarah Kearney, all expenses for this program are covered. All proceeds go directly to our organization.
