The day before Thanksgiving, Millington’s Baker Community Center was Soul Out.
Soul Out Ministries founder Carol Jenkins and several volunteers were busy in the venue located at 7942 Church Street operating the Fourth Annual Thanksgiving Feast.
For about 3 hours, Soul Out Ministries feed nearly 200 individuals with turkey and dressing, spaghetti, green beans, corn, rolls and several desserts.
“We are here to feed whoever wants a hot meal,” Jenkins said. “We are here to do His work.”
Jenkins expressed her gratitude to all those who worked behind-the-scenes and during the event to help reach out to those in need this past holiday.
Soul Out Ministries provide a regular meal to those in need throughout the year. Soul Out Ministries’ nutritional meals are served every Thursday at the Baker Community Center from noon to 1 p.m.
