Some Albany residents were given a helping hand Saturday.
The cold and rain didn TMt keep about 1,000 folks from heading to Albany State University, where a box of food was waiting for each one of them.
Bishop Victor Powell is the Pastor with Rhema Word Cathedral. Their non-profit, my bothers keeper, spearheaded the event. He says the giveaway isn TMt just about a free meal; it TMs about helping a community. We want to create a bridge. Connect people in need to the powerful programs in our community, says Powell.
Folks patiently waited in line to get their wristbands cut and get that helpful box of food. But folks receiving boxes weren TMt the only ones happy about the food giveaway. Volunteers were happy to help out; living up to their name, my brother TMs keeper.
