North Side church to host food pantry for former furloughed federal workers
2/1/2019, 6 a.m.
The Light Community Church in North Side will give away food and other much needed items to former furloughed federal workers from noon to 4 p.m. Saturday, Feb. 2, at the church, 601 Azalea Ave.
Non-perishable food items, as well as diapers and baby wipes, will be available.
“Federal employees are to bring their IDs,” said Dr. Kimberly Ridley, founder and pastor of TLCC. “We want to be a blessing to this community and we are going to do the best that we can to help as many people as we can. Our congregation wants to help these families having a difficult time, especially those with young children.”
Joining in the effort are Anointed New Life Baptist Church in Henrico County and the Richmond Chapter of Jack and Jill of America.
The church is requesting barbers, hairstylists, nail technicians and massage therapists to join in the project by offering a certificate for free services at a later date.
