In Dec. 3 Issue
Despite the bounty of food in homes during the holiday season, many people go to sleep hungry every day.
In the tradition of community service, Hungry House Ministries will hold a one day Food Drive Monday, December 7th with partnership from the US Postal Service in Jamestown and Russell Springs.
"We're trying to serve people in need," said food drive organizer Tena Woods. "It's all through the Lord."
Donations may be made at the US Post Offices in Jamestown and Russell Springs or by leaving food items in a bag by your mailbox for the mail carriers to pick up.
In Russell Springs, food donations will be received from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m. and donations may be delivered to the Jamestown Post Office between 8 a.m. and 3:45 p.m.
Nonperishable food items such as canned goods, dry beans, rice, etc. will be collected and distributed to needy families in Adair, Russell and other surrounding counties.
Woods said last year the small, country church in the Sano Community of Adair County, gave away about 5,000 new toys to local children at Christmas.
"It's a God thing," said Woods. "He always supplies and He has laid it on our hearts to help people."
Plans are in place to renovate a room adjacent to Hungry House Ministries sanctuary in order to stock food and clothing for distribution to needy folks.
Woods hopes this will be the beginning of her vision to organize a food and clothing pantry at her church.
"I have faith that it will all come together," said Woods. "I'm just trying to be hands and a mouthpiece for the Lord."
