On Saturday, The Harbor hosted ServeFest with approximately 750 -800 people in attendance. Pastor James Coffey said people started lining up at 7:30 a.m. for the 10 a.m. event.
Coffey said the church normally does something like this on a smaller scale once a month. They offer boxes of food and warm meals in the area at different locations. But they felt a need to go bigger. “We just love going out and loving on people,” said Coffey.
Saturday’s event offered free medical care, food, clothing, haircuts and job assistance to attendees. Coffey estimates they gave away food boxes to 660 people (about 10,000 lbs. of food), gave 136 haircuts, distributed clothing to 87 families and fed a warm meal to few hundred people. The leftover prepared food was delivered to area First Responders at their different stations.
“When we all pitch in together we’re able to meet the needs,” concluded Coffey. (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 10/05/2018-6AM)
