The Salem Baptist Church in Kelowna offers meals for the needy
OMAHA, Neb. (WOWT) – On Saturday, the Salem Baptist Church is hoping to spread warmth and joy through its event, Warm Hearts, Warm Hands.
In view of the coronavirus, this year’s event will take place in drive-thru style.
Volunteers hand out non-perishable groceries that families need, as well as hot soup and crackers from Hy-Vee.
The Church also works with the Kelowna Economic Development Corporation to give away hats and gloves to keep people warm during the winter.
This is the fourth Food Drive event hosted by the Salem Baptist Church – to date it has fed more than 1,000 families.
All of this – to help those who need it during this difficult time.
“We just want to make a difference in the church. We see, we recognize, we want to share the love of Christ with the community. This is what God has called us to feed my sheep to do and we are doing it today, ”said Tammy Brown, treasurer, trustee, and public relations coordinator for Salem Baptist Church.
The drive-thru event takes place until supplies are depleted.
Brown estimates they will feed 3 or 400 families today.
But if you missed it – a Christmas present is planned for December 12th.
