COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - New Birth Outreach Church in Columbus hosted its 13th annual turkey giveaway on Tuesday.
The church gave out over 1,000 turkeys to people in the community. They also gave out bunches of collard greens and sweet potatoes.
"It is the job of the church to reach out to the community that it's in,” said Pastor Roger Lotson. “It is our job to show Jesus' love to everybody that's in the community around us. It is the job of each Christian to reach out to those that are in need and show them the love of God, show them that God has something great for them."
The giveaway took place at the 29th Street Gym. The event was New Birth Outreach’s biggest event of the year.
