Mission 3:16 Giveaway Held by Haven of Hope Worship Center

PHILIPPI -

Haven of Hope Worship Center held its annual Mission 3:16 giveaway on Saturday afternoon.

The lawn in front of the courthouse in Philippi was filled with tons of clothes, household items, furniture and more.

All of the items were donated, and were both new and used.

All of the clothes were available first come first serve, but larger items were given away by drawing names out of a hat.

Thousands of people made it out to Philippi from many different counties, and the best part, it was all for free.

"We were prepared to give out 2000 meals. We have a tractor trailer full of twin size beds, over 55 beds that we're giving out. They have the wooden frames with the drawers under them and the mattresses are included. We have 25 truck loads of brand new clothing and used clothing that we're giving out," said Pastor Howard Swick, with Haven of Hope Worship Center.

Mission 3:16 has provided the free meals and giveaway for the last four years.

Haven of Hope Worship Center offers many outreaches. Hope's Pantry provides 100 free meals for Barbour County residents every month.

The Hope for Christmas Outreach provides $6,000 worth of toys for families in the area every year.
