In addition to the Community Dinner, the Giving Tree Food Pantry and Fieldstone UMC were able to make Christmas a little merrier for over 130 children through an Angel Tree program. Children in need from around the area will receive gifts and clothing this Christmas.
"We are so thankful to truly share and receive the gifts of love in our community. This is what Christmas is all about,” says Fieldstone’s pastor, T. Bryson Smith.
The Giving Tree Food Pantry is a ministry of Fieldstone United Methodist Church. Every Friday, from 6-7pm, people in need can come, no questions asked, to receive basic food staples, clothing, and more. In addition to the Angel Tree, the pantry helps with school supplies and hair cuts before school begins. Volunteers at the pantry serve about 300 families a month with generous donations from local businesses.
