Call for Artists, 2024 Crisis Control Ministry Holiday Honor Card

About Crisis Control Ministry’s Holiday Honor Card Program

For 37 years, local artists have created the Holiday Honor Card for Crisis Control Ministry. Each year, two new artwork designs are produced for the program. The artwork selected in this call for artists will be featured on a holiday card for 2024.

This fundraiser is the perfect way to give people a meaningful alternative holiday gift. All proceeds from card sales go directly to helping our neighbors in Forsyth County and Stokes County. Crisis Control Ministry provides food, medication, housing, and utility assistance to those in crisis.
