Local church taking water donations to Jackson this week
The gymnasium at Beulah Baptist Church in Tuscaloosa is filled with water destined for families in need who live in Jackson, Mississippi.
Pastor David Gay said the bottled water drive for Jackson is already a huge success.
“Our church is built on community service, and we are always looking for work and ways to help,” Gay said. “Not just in Tuscaloosa. We have sent trucks to Houston, to New Orleans and Mississippi. This is not our first rodeo. We look for opportunities to help those in need of help.”
The church, located at 3100 25th St. in Tuscaloosa, is accepting donations until 5 p.m. Tuesday, Sept. 6.
All donated water will be taken to a church in Jackson.
