Helping Hands United Mission distributes meals for holidays By JOEY PITCHFORD jpitchford@newsargus.com Every year for more than two decades, Lula Newkirk has brought a bit of Christmas joy to the people of Mount Olive, and this year was no different. Newkirk, president of Helping Hands United Mission in Mount Olive, joined with volunteers to distribute 150 holi- day meals Dec. 14, dur- ing the mission's annu- al Christmas food box giveaway. Each box con- tained a turkey and all of the trimmings, from stuffing, black beans and rice to green beans, fruit, sweet potatoes and more. Sitting in a room with all 150 boxes in rows, Newkirk said that the food was going to peo- ple across Mount Olive and the surrounding area. Newkirk said that the goal of the giveaway was simple — feed the needy. Her daughter, Renee Newkirk, said that the season makes it all the more impor- tant. "Especially during the holidays, there are so many who go without," Renee said. "To have a place that they know that they can come to, because we're not just here at Christmas, we're here throughout the year, so this is a place where those who need help with food can come and get packed boxes to eat." The giveaway was supported by donors from the Mount Olive area. Mays Chapel Church, Mount Olive Presbyterian, AARP, the Men of FIC and Mount Olive Pickle Co. all pitched in to support the event, and Area Churches in Action donated much of the food itself. Lula Newkirk said that she was thankful to the various donors and to God for allowing Help- ing Hands to continue aiding the community. "We're surely thank- ful for the support from the community, and from God," she said. "There have been indi- viduals as well, too many to name." 'Especially during the holidays, there are so many who go without.' RENEE NEWKIRK on why Helping Hands feeds the needy at Christmas time. ■ Food boxes have been given out for more than two decades.
