Imagine more than 10,000 people receiving 270,000 pounds of food.
That’s what the Bethlehem Apostolic Temple estimates they’ve given out over the past 28 Thanksgivings, and they’re about to do it again.
“This is open to everybody, we have no restrictions. It is first come first served basis. We don’t ask for proof of income, we don’t ask for poof of residency or any of those things. If you say you’re in need, as long as we have it, we’ll help you with it,” said Reverend Darrell Cummings, Bethlehem Apostolic Temple.
On Saturday, starting at 11:00 a.m., they’ll open the doors of the North Wheeling Dream Center, and give away hundreds of free turkeys, plus boxed foods, fruits, vegetables and desserts.
They’ll also be handing out some special items for kids.
“We’re looking forward to, as we do every year, giving away school supplies and clothes. For the clothes, children must be present, that’s the only restriction. We have some winter coats and other items to try and help people make it through the winter” Rev. Cummings said.
The giveaway is first come first serve, and donations are still needed.

Reverend Cummings said clothing donations can be dropped off at the Bethlehem Apostolic Temple, at 330 Main Street.
