Columbus church holds contactless Thanksgiving food box giveaway

COLUMBUS, Ga. (WTVM) - Greater Shady Grove Missionary Baptist Church held their Thanksgiving food box distribution in Columbus over the weekend.

They gave out 100 boxes at their contactless “Let us Give Thanks Food Drive-Thru” event held in their parking lot on 12th Ave.

“2020 has been a really tough year on people in our community with the shortages going on and the coronavirus restrictions. There are a lot of people who are experiencing hunger now and we believe as Christians it becomes our lot to try alleviate that as best as we can,” said Marcus Gibson, pastor of Shady Grove Missionary Baptist Church.

The church’s brotherhood organization sponsored the mission event.
