77 families aided by church for Thanksgiving

ELIZABETHTOWN – On Tuesday, Nov. 23, the Baldwin Branch Missionary Baptist Church distributed 60 Thanksgiving baskets to Bladen County families by way of the county schools.

The church’s food pantry also aided 27 families on Saturday, Nov. 28.

Members of the congregation provided minimum identical food sustenances for the baskets, the church a turkey. Several baskets contained more than the minimum items. They were delivered just in time for Thanksgiving.

The church’s 2016 goal is to increase these ministries to reach additional families. The church’s motto is: “We’re reaching up … reaching out … a guiding light! We desire to make a de’lightful difference in your family.”
