PROVIDING FOOD TO COMMUNITY

Faye Griffin, First Baptist Church Jefferson treasurer, is shown presenting a check to Ronnie Hopkins, Jefferson Board of Education chairman, for $3,000 for the Meal Sack Initiative. These meals are being provided, at a private expense, free of charge to the community. The food and nutrition team sends out meals to several pick-up locations around Jefferson, as students remain home and continue Distance & Digital Learning. Michael Helms, pastor of First Baptist Church says, "While the church as had to suspend its Food Bank service to the community for a brief time, we are finding other ways to help feed the hungry in Jefferson."
