Millington Goody’s store manager Heaven Mullen poses with Soul Out Ministries founder Carol Jenkins after volunteers loaded the 15-bags of donated clothing.

In nearly 100 degree temperatures under the bright Millington sun, Soul Out Ministries volunteers Raymond Alexander, Adrian Benton and Tim Posey loaded 15 bags of donated clothes into the SUV of Carol Jenkins.
Jenkins, the founder of Soul Out Ministries, was grateful for the work of the three men as she nurses an injured shoulder.
Soul Out Ministries was on location at 8221 Highway 51 North at the Millington Goody’s to pick up the large bags of clothes. Goody’s conducted a clothing drive throughout July for the ministry.
“The drive concluded on July 21,” Millington Goody’s store manager Heaven Mullen noted. “It is an honor to work for a company that puts the community first. It pushes things like this. We are like a small-town store and without our community, our customers keep us going.”
Jenkins expressed her gratitude to Mullens, Millington Goody’s and all those who donated.
“It means a whole lot,” she said. “It’s overwhelming and I am so thankful, grateful. We appreciate the community giving back to people in need. Everyone has to come together, it’s all about unity.”
Soul Out Ministries celebrated its second anniversary July 28. It started with hot nutritional meal being served every Thursday at the Baker Community Center at 7942 Church Street from noon to 1 p.m. The program is a local non-profit organization and all donations are tax deductible.
The meals have been postponed for a few weeks with Jenkins recovering from her disability. They will resume on Sept. 10 at Baker Community Center.
