JONESVILLE — A church known throughout Union County and beyond for its food ministry that feeds as many as 4,500 people a month will hold a special non-food distribution this Wednesday.
For the past several years The Potters Storehouse has distributed food and other necessities to 3,500-4,500 people or an average of 900 families in need each month. In March of this year, those receiving the church’s assistance included 1,400 children under the age of 16 and 750 people over 65 years old.
In addition to its direct distributions to those in need, the church has also assisted other organizations with their food distribution programs including the Town of Carlisle and First Presbyterian Church in Union.
This Wednesday, however, the church will hold a special distribution in which no food will be distributed.
Pastor Don Moore said that Wednesday’s event will be a special “Back To School Distribution” in which school and other non-food items will be distributed. The items to be distributed include:
• Other miscellaneous school supplies
• Cleaning supplies
• Paper goods
• Over the counter medicine
• Hair products
• Personal hygiene items for men and women
• Assorted toys
Moore said that these and thousands of other non-food items will be distributed at the church from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Wednesday.
“We are hoping to distribute at least 24 pallets,” Moore said. “This is open to everyone, please come and take advantage of this distribution.”
