Although I have been away from Wilmington, NC for over five years now, it is one of the cities that I consider home for many reasons. I still have many life long friends there and I regularly keep up with some of my former professors. One thing that is often masked in the beauty of the city between downtown and the beaches is the number of homeless and poor people within the city. A good friend go mine recently started serving as an urban missionary with Vigilant Hope, which is an organization created to help meet the needs of the needy and the homeless. If you are looking for a non-profit to give some end of the year donations to then this would be one worth considering in a city that needs it.
