ALBANY, GA (WALB) - A South Albany church lent a helping hand to the community Saturday. Ebenezer Christian Center on South Madison Street opened its doors to give away clothing and food to those who needed it.

Their Stone of Help Ministry hands out food and clothing every fifth Saturday. During the giveaway they provide a few words of encouragement, and say they are only doing what they have been called to do.

"We are doing what our father did in feeding the hungry. We want to let the community know that we are here not just to feed and cloth, but to provide support and help them grow stronger in their faith, said Minister Lucille Smith.

The church is currently taking applications for their Thanksgiving meal giveaway. or more information on how to sign up call 229-439-1289.
