NICHOLAS COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – This year hasn’t been easy for anyone, so a local church decided to give back.
The Memorial United Methodist Church in Summersville put some smiles on the faces of those protecting the community by delivering goodie bags to first responders. So far, they’ve delivered to hospital employees, EMTs and law enforcement. Next week, they plan to visit local firefighters.
“They’re putting their lives on the line for us and they’re doing the things we can’t do for ourselves,” said Rev. Carolyn Mash. “We’re just so grateful and wanted to share the love of Jesus in a tangible way. Instead of just saying thanks, we wanted to give them something so they can see our thanks for them, our gratitude in our hearts for all they do for us all the time, but especially during the COVID-19 pandemic.”
To pitch in, Rev. Mash asks that you mail a donation to the church at 1317 Webster Road in Summersville.
