A local ministry causes some confusion around gift cards

A local ministry trying to help those in need in our community ended up causing some confusion. Reaching Hearts Ministry handed out hundreds of $10 Food Lion gift cards to single mothers, homeless women and female prison inmates Saturday. But when the recipients went to use the cards, there was no money on them. Wendy Davis received one of those gift cards and said, "By the end of the program we get the food for Thanksgiving dinner, and a ten dollar gift card, but unfortunately there seems to be a glitch with the cards, because the cards have no money on them." Reaching Hearts is aware of the problem and is working with Food Lion to reinstate the $10 to all the cards. They encourage people to hang on to their cards and call the toll free number on them to check the balance.
