Bridgeville area churches are looking for the community’s helps as it tries to supply residents in desperate need of clothes, food, baby diapers and other emergency items.
In response, the Bridgeville Ministerium is opening up a new support center that will serve as a central location for the community.
The new Bridgeville Community Outreach Center at 715 Washington Ave. across from the U.S. Post Office will be operated and sponsored by local churches.
said this is an opportunity for the community and its churches to support those who need food, clothing and supplies before the winter.
“(We) have witnessed a large increase in the volume of those in need in our community realizing that currently there is no place in Bridgeville for those in need to go to seek help in even the most basic areas,” he said.
The center will officially open on Oct. 6 and be operating the first Saturday of each month from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Thiessen said the center will offer boxes of food, winter coats, diapers, formula and other emergency supply boxes.
