Honor Card 2018

Holiday Honor Card

At the Urban Ministry Center, we have a holiday tradition that honors the true spirit of the season. Each year we select a piece of art created by one of the members of our ArtWorks 945 program to feature on a holiday card, available for donations that directly benefit our neighbors. This year, consider our Holiday Honor Card instead of traditional gifts for your friends, family and clients. A donation given in their honor directly supports our ministry of ending homelessness in Charlotte.

Many folks ask what is the right donation, but we leave that up to our donors. One guideline would be to spend whatever you would spend on a gift. We can say, however, that the average donation per card is nearly $20, with the top donation received last year of $1,000 per card.

Your purchase of our 2018 Honor Card is a direct investment in God’s people. Isn’t that what Christmas is all about? We will sign and mail them on your behalf. It’s such a convenience and our gift to you.

A simple gift with a Higher Purpose

Eveco Haggins, 2018 Honor Card artist

About the artist, Eveco Haggins
From an early age, art has been as essential as breathing for Eveco Haggins. Through life’s struggles, including homelessness, art provided an expressive outlet for the hardworking, persistent Eveco. When she discovered the resources and support available to her at Urban Ministry Center, Eveco found another oasis. Through hard work, she was able to find a job, a home and a new life where she and her art can thrive. From hand-painted clothing to traditional drawings and paintings, Eveco’s works reflect her journey. She still says that art is like breath for her, and credits the ArtWorks 945 Program for allowing her access to the things her artistic soul craves: new materials and space to create. Eveco is not only a local artist and tenant at the Urban Ministry Center’s Moore Place, she is also a picture of strength.
