New Birth and Partners Give Families Financially Impacted by COVID-19 Something to Be Thankful For
Holiday Drive-through Food Pantry Provides Turkeys, Hope During Thanksgiving
As families across the country reimagine Thanksgiving with limited loved ones gathering in a central location, New Birth Missionary Baptist Church is giving thousands of families something to be thankful for this holiday season.
On Saturday, Nov. 21, beginning at 10 a.m., New Birth Senior Pastor Dr. Jamal Harrison Bryant and DeKalb County CEO Michael Thurmond are partnering to provide a turkey, 20-pound box filled with fresh fruits and vegetables and other essential items for families financially impacted by COVID-19. No registration is needed, and all items will be provided on a first come, first served basis on the New Birth campus located at 6400 Woodrow Rd. in Stonecrest.
Throughout the pandemic, New Birth has provided nearly 8,000 families with food and other essential items on a weekly basis. The COVID-19 crisis brought businesses to a halt, leading to increased needs from families that has prompted New Birth to transition the King’s Table ministry to a standalone nonprofit.
