“Most of the giveaways are food related and/or toys, things of that nature and that’s wonderful,” said Bishop Dr. H. Benard Alex, the church’s senior pastor. “But, the self worth of children, going to school with clean clothes, people in the home having clean clothes and now with everyone’s concern about making sure we are hygienic in all regards, just getting your house in order and it just helps people feel better knowing I have clean clothes.”

The church will be accepting donations from on Friday, November 19 from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. It is located at 817 East Willow Street in Syracuse. You can also provide monetary donations.
