Food & clothing distributed, donations collected for S.C. flood victims

GREENVILLE, NC (WNCT) – Donations poured in to the Churches Outreach Network’s food and clothing distribution after the recent cold temperatures.

The Churches Outreach Network donates food to those in need on the first Wednesday of every month. Volunteers also made clothing available.

Donations were also collected for the victims of last year’s South Carolina floods.

“We’re hoping that today we would get some of the things that were requested,” said Susan Turnage, a Churches Outreach Network volunteer. “Things that they need, like cleaning supplies, because they have a lot of mold and mildew that was caused from the flood, but we’re hoping today they would we be able to collect stuff that would assist them.”

Members will head to South Carolina at the end of the month to donate the items collected.
