“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’

Matthew 25:40

KJV

Several organizations and individuals in Stone County have taken it upon themselves to make sure no one goes without during the current crisis.

While it would be a great task to list them all, a couple of efforts have stood out over the past few days.

On Saturday, the Sister’s Keepers Mission Group at New Welcome Hill Baptist Church, in partner ship with the Wiggins Police Department, gave out 325 hot meals to adults and children who pulled through the church’s parking lot on Hwy. 26.

“It’s something we wanted to do and we got a lot of help from the community when we put out the information we needed supplies,” said Sgt. Tim Hill of the WPD. “The Butcher Block donated the chicken, Sawmill Restaurant smoked it, Pizza Inn donated salad and Darryl Tillman gave us the rolls.”

Hill and other members of the WPD force, along with church members, volunteered to pass out the food.

“It’s just one small thing we can do to help make a difference,” Hill said.

On Monday, members of Venture Church on Hwy. 49 set up canopies in the parking lot and handed out more than 125 sack lunches to all comers.

John and Cyndi Cucuzza organized the effort and Daphne and Kiley Nickels helped with passing the food out to those who drove through.

In addition, boxes of the sack lunches were delivered to the Wiggins fire and police departments.
