KINSTON, N.C. (WNCT) – A local church banded together to feed and clothe victims of hurricane Matthew.
Dozens turned out to Greater Mount Zion Church in Kinston Saturday to eat fresh food, pick up toiletries products, and clothing.
President Glenda King said they received a truck load of canned goods to give to the public, along with men’s, women’s and children’s clothing donations.
The event was mainly for flood victims, but organizers said they always welcome anyone who is just in need of love.
King said it’s her passion to help people less fortunate. “My parents were in the flood in 1999 and that’s what inspired me to do this, to do this today.”
King said, for many people who came through this was their only meal of the day and they left very happy.
