Linda Tucker and Rusty Doom

Hopkinsville Ministries Work Together To Help Others

Several organizations that work to help feed, clothe, and provide basic needs to the homeless and the less fortunate, are pooling their resources to help meet community needs. Micah Mission served as the location for the meeting, and assistant director Rusty Doom announced that they have received a freezer they needed. He also announced that they will expand their ministry to Crofton and Pembroke by delivering food baskets every Thursday. Doom says the baskets will be delivered to a church in Pembroke.


   
The delivery location in Crofton hasn't been finalized yet.


   
Anyone wanting to donate food or money to Micah Mission can stop by their building at 209 South Main Street or call 270-890-3672.

A representative from the Aaron McNeil House was at the meeting and announced that the next commodity distribution will be held March 11 at 9:00. Photo ID or other proof of residency in Christian County is required, but proof of income is not. In addition, they are in need of monetary donations to support the back pack program to help feed area children.

Representatives from the American Red Cross where on hand and offered cleaning supplies to the other organizations. The Red Cross also stressed that they are in need of volunteers. Anyone who would like to become a volunteer, should visit redcross.org.

Impact Ministries provides food, clothing, toys, diapers, spiritual counseling, and other items to those in need. According to Co-Director, Linda Tucker, Impact Ministries are currently in need of non-perishable foods, diapers, basic personal hygiene items, and monetary donations. Jobs for Life Coordinator, Emanuel Wilson was also at the meeting to share about a new program they are implementing to help people get manufacturing jobs.
