Chatham County History of Communities of Color


In conjunction with the Chatham 250 celebration, Chatham Community Library will host a virtual lecture focusing on the genealogical and heritage resources available through the County’s public libraries and other related sources.  This event is part of the Chatham 250 lecture series chronicling the histories of communities of color in Chatham County, and will feature experts in history and genealogy who will touch on the various groups that settled in Chatham County and the places from which they came.

Participants will learn about specific genealogical resources—what they are, where they are stored, how to access them, and who can help with their research. The presentation will also contain helpful tips to aid those who are building family histories or researching and tracking records.

This event is free and open to the public and made possible through the support of volunteer experts and organizations.

Registration for this event is required and is available here: https://tinyurl.com/ChathamHeritage

Donate Over-the-Counter and Prescription Meds

Updated March 18, 2021 by Fearrington Cares

The Chatham Cares Community Pharmacy (CCCP) in Siler City is a great place to donate medical items you no longer want or need. CCCP is a non-profit local organization providing quality pharmacy services to uninsured and underinsured residents of the county. They accept medical equipment that has been cleansed thoroughly or never used by a patient. They also accept supplies of all kinds (anything you can buy at a drugstore or medical supply store) and personal care items (soap, shampoo, lotion, deodorant, waterproof or disposable bed pads, adult underwear, urinals, disposable gloves, compression socks, bed risers, etc.).

The CCCP accepts unopened OTC (over-the-counter) medications of all kinds. They also accept ALL CURRENT prescription medications (except controlled substances) that are unopened and still sealed. If the medication was dispensed in a blister pack, unused pills that are still in the blister pack are also accepted. Their licensed pharmacists will take your leftovers and add them to others to make a supply for our less-fortunate neighbors in Chatham County. Instead of turning these (sometimes very expensive) items into a pharmacy or the police for destruction, please take them to the CCCP. For office hours and location, go to www.chathamcares.com/1.html or call 919-663-0177.
