KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Two Kansas City metro churches joined forces to bring some relief to those who are struggling amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Fellowship Church and United Believers Community Church provided more than 10,000 items, including clothes and masks, to the community at no cost.

Edward Newsome, chairman of deacons at United Believers Community Church, said the event gives the church a way to help the community in more ways than one.

“We have hundreds of people here already,” he said, “but the main thing is, we have clothes -- enough for everybody. So again, we want to have a chance not to just give clothes, but also offer counseling to those who need it.”

The events, according to organizers, fulfill efforts to be a blessing to the community.
