PENDER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) — A church in Pender County is collecting food, clothes, and donations for communities devastated by severe weather in West Virginia.
Members of Blake’s Chapel Advent Christian Church are trying to fill a U-Haul to take all the donations to West Virginia next week.
Deaconess Patricia Martin said one of their church members, Missy Hodge, is from West Virginia and still has friends and family members there. Martin said they are trying to do anything they can to help the families who have lost everything.
“We want to do what we can to help, because that’s what we do,” Martin said. “We are mission minded here at the church.”
The church off Sloop Point Road will be collecting items until Sunday. Martin said they need things like women’s hygiene, and non-perishable food items.
