SMBC Hosts Community Service Food Giveaway Feb. 27

Wednesday, February 17, 2021

In celebration of Black History Month and as an opportunity to give back to the community, Second Missionary Baptist Church, 2305 E. Third St., is hosting a drive through giveaway of 200 boxes of food to neighbors in need on Saturday, Feb. 27, starting at 11 a.m.  The boxes will be distributed until all boxes are gone up until 1 p.m.

Recipients may enter from the east side of the parking lot and follow directions as posted. To comply with social distancing, recipients are asked to wear a mask, but will not have to leave their cars as they drive through.

"As we have been blessed, so we seek to bless others through service," officials said.

This church-wide community service project is held in collaboration with the Club 11 Ministry of Second, in lieu of their annual Black History Banquet, usually hosted by the ministry during February. 

The planning committee is led by Deborah Maddox, along with Minister Ronald Harris, chairman of Club 11 Ministry, and fellow ministry officers, Pecola Lee and Gwendolyn Moore. Dr. Ernest L. Reid, Jr. is pastor. 

For more information, call the church at 423-624-9097 during regular office hours of 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m., Monday – Thursday, and 9 a.m.-3:30 p.m. on Fridays.
