A popular holiday tradition at one local church returns next weekend.
For more than 25 years, the Bethlehem Apostolic Temple have hosted their annual Christmas Basket Giveaway.
The church giveaways everything from food to school supplies and clothing. There are toy giveaways as well for the children.
Reverend Darrell Cummings welcomes all in hopes of helping make Christmas brighter for those in need.
“We have received people from all over Pennsylvania, Ohio and all parts of West Virginia,” said Reverend Cummings. “There is no residency requirements, there are no income requirements. If you say you are in need we trust you.”
Volunteers are still needed for the giveaway and the Bethlehem Apostolic Temple will be accepting donations until the day of the event.
The giveaway will be held at the North Wheeling Community Dream Center Saturday, Dec. 22, beginning at 10 a.m.
