Greensboro Will get Collectively for the Meals Giveaway | faith
GREENSBORO, NC – Parishioners lined up along Alamance Church Road to pick up much-needed groceries and supplies at the Mount Zion Baptist Church food raffle on Jan.
The Church has partnered with Out of the Garden Project to provide 450 CHICK-FIL-A sandwiches and food to all those in need. Church officials counted 1,031 people who will benefit from the boxes, which contained fresh produce such as celery, cabbage, pineapple, tomatoes and a gallon of orange juice.
“At a time when we are living with COVID-19 and people are being laid off, we thought this would be a good opportunity for us to work with other community organizations to ensure we are doing the things necessary to take care of our community Said James Brooks IV, a Mount Zion Baptist Church member and director of marketing.
Mount Zion, where Bishop Bryan J. Pierce Sr. serves as a senior pastor. currently has a pantry open to all three days a week and hosts annual community projects that offer resources for the benefit of the Greensboro community. Brooks shared this to comply with social distancing guidelines; the church finds other ways to continue to serve the people.
“These are just things we like to do.” said Brooks. “We are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus and that is exactly what we will do.”
