Cornertstone to host drive-thru food drive Thursday afternoon

Cornerstone Presbyterian Church will host a “Drive Through Food Drive” on Thursday from noon until 5 p.m. to assist those affected by COVID-19.
The church will collect pantry staples like canned goods, rice and beans, baby essentials like diapers and formula as well as hygiene items to deliver to the Christian Outreach Alliance Food Pantry and the Selma Area Food Bank.
Cornerstone Mission Team Chairman Kent Woodruff said the idea for the food drive came from conversations about needs within the community due to the pandemic.
After learning about the need for additional items from the Christian Outreach Alliance Food Pantry and the Selma Area Food Bank, the church them put their plan into action.
“People were just jumping up and down to help out,” said Woodruff. “We have a great Missions Team at Cornerstone.”
Woodruff said Thursday’s food drive will be a safe and simple process with all the proper precautions in place to keep both volunteers and donors safe.
To make a contribution, donors should fill their car trunks with the items they’d like to contribute, enter the church parking lot via Lauderdale Street, pull under the covering, open their trunk and volunteers will collect and sort the goods.
For those still wary of doing any grocery shopping, monetary donations can be given on Thursday.
“We thought this would be an easy way to help out a lot of people,” said Woodruff. “We all recognize a need here in Selma, but the average person isn’t always sure exactly how to help. We can collect all this food and put it into the hands of the people who know what to do with it. [ The Christian Outreach Alliance Food Pantry and the Selma Area Food Bank] know how to get it out to the right people.”
