Cape Girardeau Congregation Helps Out Needy Families

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - Members of the Fellowship Baptist Church knocked on one door after another Tuesday morning, asking people if they needed food or toys this holiday season.
This is becoming a holiday tradition for the congregation, giving out items to people who need it.
"We get joy and smiles and little kids jumping up and down and how happy they are that they are getting something for Christmas," Pastor Lewis Todd said.
One person who got the gifts of toys and food was Jerry Warren, Sr.  Warren lost his job earlier this year, and was forced to leave his home.  He moved in with his dad, and was reading an article about a miracle involving a woman who lost her ability to walk, when a congregation member knocked on the door.
"She asked if I needed some help, I said yes," Warren said. "This is going to go a long way this Christmas season.  It's brought joy into my life and into my daughter's life."
The congregation accepts donations all year for the program.  If you are interested, contact Fellowship Baptist Church for more information.
