A local church continues to spread goodwill to Chattanooga area residents impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. New Life Seventh-day Adventist Church, at 2099 E. Main St. in Chattanooga, hosts its food box giveaway every second and fourth Tuesday of the month from 3:30-5 p.m. or until supplies run out.
The next giveaways will take place on Feb. 23, March 9, March 23 and April 13.
New Life welcomes those in need to pick up a food box on a first come, first serve basis, with a drive-thru setup designed to satisfy social distancing guidelines while serving the community.
In 2020, the church gave away more than 2,500 boxes -- 1,837 of those delivered to families from March through December at the height of the pandemic.
Robert Grissom, community service director at New Life, says his church is keeping the faith during these unprecedented times as it continues doing its part to bless others.
“New Life seeks to impact our community with the Life of Christ as a tangible resource for those in need,” said Mr. Grissom. “We are called to spread the Gospel as Jesus did as we empower people with God’s love.”
