Exodus Homes' 2022 William Mangum Honor Cards Available Now for the Last Time
610 4th St. SW
Hickory, NC 28602
www.exodushomes.org

HICKORY - For the past 35 years, Greensboro artist William Mangum has created a beautiful painting for The Honor Card Program to help raise funds for organizations who serve homeless men and women in N.C. Exodus Homes, a faith based United Way agency is one of 15 N.C. organizations participating in The Honor Card program, and the giving of Exodus Homes' Honor Cards has become a tradition in this area. Each card sells for $5.00 and all proceeds from sales help fund the 73 bed supportive housing program at Exodus Homes.

Mangum's passion to help homeless people began in 1987 when he met a homeless man who changed his life and his perspective on the suffering of homeless people. "Homelessness is a complex reality. It sounds simple, but there is no single explanation for how people fall into homelessness. I've sat with men and women who suffered from mental health disorders, many who were recovering from drug or alcohol abuse, and those who had experienced physical and sexual abuse. Ultimately, each person's story held different tragic turns which contributed to their situation. We fail to honor the complexities of suffering when we oversimplify these contributing factors, or worse, quietly assign blame to the person next to us" said Mangum.

This year's Honor Card is called "Making A Difference" and depicts two men walking together on a snowy day, one helping the other. Sales of Honor Cards are a primary source of funds annually for Exodus Homes and the recipient will know that a gift has been made to Exodus Homes in their honor. "With high gas prices and the steep rise in inflation, sales of this year's Honor Card are especially important to help us reach our budget goals this year, Giving Honor Cards for the holidays is a great way to give a meaningful gift that keeps on giving throughout the year. " says the Rev. Susan Smith, assistant executive director of Exodus Homes.

Since 1988, The William Mangum Honor Card has raised over ten million dollars for organizations like Exodus Homes, and this will be the last year they will be available because Mangum is retiring from the program. Mangum said, "Thirty-five years later I’m proud to say that the Honor Card program helped to provide a voice and authentic story annually about the great resources that outreach agencies provide for homeless and needy people. It has always been my intent that the Honor Card would stir the hearts and emotions of our community to come alongside supporting organizations who serve less fortunate people." Smith says "Exodus Homes will be carrying on William Mangum's Honor Card legacy by creating our own version of the holiday card next year. We are very grateful for all we have learned from William Mangum in The Honor Card program, and we will be working with our residents to create a new card that shares our mission in helping homeless people learn a new way to live after addiction and incarceration".

We praise God for the significant reduction in COVID infections in Catawba County and feel it is the time to go "mask optional".

Local Foundations Fund Hauling Upgrade for Exodus Homes

Hickory, NC 28602

Contact: Rev. Susan Smith 828-962-8196 or [email protected]

HICKORY - Exodus Homes, a faith based United Way agency providing supportive housing for homeless recovering people, has received two grants to fund an upgrade for their hauling enterprises in Exodus Works, their revenue generating vocational training program. The net profit of Exodus Works is a primary source of funding for Exodus Homes.

Some of the most requested services of Exodus Works are cleanouts and hauling for the Hickory area. Exodus Homes' residents working as volunteers in Exodus Works help people clean out barns, sheds, attics, garages, warehouses, hoarder houses, and abandoned homeless camps as well as hauling landscape debris. Every week they have had to make multiple trips to the landfill to dump the debris using a regular pick up truck and landscape trailer. As demand for this service has grown, Exodus Homes graduate and Exodus Works Supervisor George Reid made it clear they needed an upgrade to be more cost effective and time efficient. "I have been begging Rev. Susan for years to help us get a dump trailer so we could make less trips to the landfill and only handle the trash one time," he said.

The Rev. Susan Smith, Exodus Homes assistant executive director, has been looking for funders to help and recently was successful in securing two grants for the upgrade project. Last fall a local foundation that prefers to remain anonymous granted them $10,000 to purchase a new 2021 Leonard GT-714 Griffin Built 14,000 lb. (7 ton) dump trailer with a maximum load of 10,000 lbs. This was just what they needed but for a dump trailer that size, but they needed a larger pick up truck capable of towing it. Recently the George Foundation awarded a $25,000 grant to help them purchase a truck for this purpose. Mitzi Goins, Exodus Homes graduate and Exodus Works Asset Manager looked high and low for the right truck that was in their budget. With the help of Street Source, a locally owned auto mechanic shop, they found a 2008 Ford F 350 4 door diesel 4 wheel drive online in Texas and had it shipped here. With the new dump trailer
and F 350 pick up, Exodus Works is ready to take their hauling enterprise to the next level.

"This is a dream come true for us. We are deeply grateful to the George Foundation for their generous gift that will help us use our new dump trailer. Local foundations have truly been our partners over the years to help us create work opportunities for our residents" she said.

To request a cleanout or hauling service from Exodus Works please call 828-324-2390.
