Christmas 2017

Barrett Walker, Exec. Director of the Sandhills/Moore Coalition for Human Care, Myron Dice, chairperson of Christmas for Moore (formerly The Empty Stocking Fund), and the Rev. Dr. Paul Murphy of the Trinity Community Outreach Center and the Murphy Family Musical Ensemble gather to discuss the Christmas season and to increase awareness of those not as fortunate as some at this special time of year.

The many agencies in and around Moore County don’t elevate their game at the Christmas season, as their endeavors are a 12 month a year exercise.

The Christmas season is however, a time of giving and hope.  We are surrounded by people in Moore County of all types of people of different incomes, different needs and different problems.

Sandhills/Moore Coalition for Human Care, Inc.

integral function they serve in fulfilling the Coalition’s mission. Barrett walks listeners through the referral and job counseling services the
