Our mission: “Improving lives through service and collaboration in Johnston County”. This Thanksgiving, Serve the Need in Johnston County, Inc. – in partnership with area businesses, churches, civic organizations and over 100 volunteers, served over 3000 meals to Johnston County residents.

This annual event caught the attention of WRAL News, who broadcast live from the event. In case you missed it, this is the video from their broadcast along with a nice write-up. We’re so thankful to our members and all those that helped to make this extraordinary event possible! “What we do by ourselves matters; What we do together, really makes the difference.” “When we give we get back.”
