Organizers say they are committed to helping veterans or anyone that needs help
NEW CASTLE, Pa. (WKBN) – The N.O.W. Project hosted another one of its food distributions Saturday morning in New Castle.
People started lining up at the Cascade Galleria Plaza on South Jefferson before 5 a.m.
Distribution started officially at 10 a.m.
Churches and veterans groups from all over the Valley showed up to help pass out food.
In all, they passed out enough food for 3,000 families. Each family got three boxes of food.
A special line for veterans was also set up.
“In less than 12 months, we’ve actually distributed over 200,000 boxes of food, which is a staggering amount because we’re a church of about 120 people. Now we’re reaching veterans. We’re reaching churches from all over the region to come down and get food to take back, so it’s really become more massive than we ever thought,” said distribution coordinator Gary Johnson.
The N.O.W. Project will continue to have food distributions every other Saturday.
