Local groups provide Thanksgiving food to hundreds in Wilmington
WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) - New Hanover County and the City of Wilmington partnered with Hope Baptist Church for All Nations to provide Thanksgiving meals to people in need on Thursday, Nov. 24.
The church prepared and cooked meals for anyone in need, whether they were without shelter or just wanted a warm meal. Free care bags were available as well.
“The beautiful thing was that I like about it is that these people have families, and what they decided to do was to come and find [each other.] Homeless and everybody else or the other word they use, everybody else. They came to feed them first then about three o’clock we’ll go home and feed our families,” said James Jamison, pastor at Hope Baptist Church for All Nations.
The Wilmington Interdenominational Ministerial Alliance helped provide the food, and the collaborative effort was able to serve hundreds of people this Thanksgiving.
