“The Climb” – honoring our homeless veterans
Church representatives, business representatives, and individuals are welcome

The sale of William Mangum Honor Cards during the holidays is a primary source of funding for Exodus Homes annually. Greensboro artist William Mangum donates the paintings, and Wells Fargo produces the cards. 100% of the proceeds from Honor Card sales benefit Exodus Homes. This year’s card is called “The Climb” and honors the struggle of homeless veterans. It is estimated that 25% of all homeless people are veterans. Exodus Homes has served many homeless veterans over the years, and today we support them in the community through Unifour Veterans Helping Veterans, a support group we helped establish at Grace House in Hickory.
These beautiful Honor Cards are given as small gifts or used as holiday cards. Each card tells the recipient a gift has been made in their honor to Exodus Homes, and includes information about our program. The funds generated by the sale of Honor Cards helps us serve all homeless recovering people returning to the community from treatment centers or prison, but this year’s card is especially relevant to the homeless veterans we serve.
On November 19, 2012 at 6:00pm at Exodus Missionary Outreach Church we will host a special dinner for church representatives, business representatives, and individuals who would like to be a part of getting the word out about the 2012 Exodus Homes William Mangum Honor Card. William Mangum will be with us to tell us the history of the Honor card program and describe the three homeless veterans who inspired this year’s card. “The Climb” Honor Cards will be on sale for those wishing to purchase them that evening as well.
We hope you will join us for a delicious meal and fellowship with William Mangum, the one who has helped raise over $4,000,000 for homeless programs over the past 25 years. Those who agree to help get these cards out in the community will be helping all the homeless recovering residents of Exodus Homes, especially our homeless veterans, and other homeless and needy veterans in the community.
We hope to see you at the dinner at 6:00pm on November 19 at Exodus Church!
