Galatia changes fundraising for Ashley Thompson
Due to COVID-19, Galatia Evangelical Presbyterian Church has decided not to have the annual meal, cake walk and hymn sing fundraiser for the Rev. Ashley Thompson, a missionary. Instead, the church asks for prayers and financial support of Thompson, who is currently serving as a missionary in Madrid, Spain. Please make checks payable to Galatia EPC with Ashley Thompson’s name in the memo line. Mail to Galatia EPC, 78 Gala Loop Road, Eagle Rock, 24085. All proceeds go directly to support Ashley Thompson.
Springwood Food Pantry opening Oct. 17
The Springwood Baptist Food Pantry will reopen on Saturday, Oct. 17, from 9-11 a.m. after being closed for six months due to the pandemic. Regular clients are welcome, as well as others in the community who are in need of food.
The pantry is connected to Feeding America Southwest Virginia and provides a variety of food items to clients to supplement what families are able to provide for themselves.
