Over 200 churches and other Christian organizations from throughout the United States are joining together to provide 20,000 turkeys, free-of-charge, to victims of Hurricane Katrina on November 21-22, 2005, in Biloxi, MS. The two-day distribution event, hosted by Biloxi’s Bay Vista Baptist Church, will be held at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum and Convention Center in Biloxi.
“Families have suffered from loss and displacement resulting from the hurricane, said Kevin Clifton, senior pastor of Bay Vista Baptist Church of Biloxi. “So I am grateful to the hundreds of churches that have joined together as volunteers and supporters to bring hope to our communities.”
The Thanksgiving program will kick-off with a turkey distribution where each family will receive one free turkey. Distribution will be held on Monday, November 21, from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. and Tuesday, November 22, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., until supplies are depleted. Throughout distribution on Tuesday from 1p.m. to 5 p.m., a Family Fun Day will be offered and will include games, prizes, food and fun. Family Fun Day will be followed by a concert performance featuring country music singer, Mark Wills and Christian recording artist, New Song. The performance will conclude by an encouraging message by Dr. Johnny Hunt, senior pastor of First Baptist Church of Woodstock, GA.
