GREENSBORO, N.C. — A group of people in Greensboro came together Wednesday morning to help bring hope to the people who need it most.

  • Groups gather to provide meals and clothes for the homeless in Greensboro
  • The is the first time the group has done this on New Year's Day
  • More than 30 volunteers participated

Abundant Life Church's Our Kingdom Distributors Outreach Team and their partners out of Raleigh put on a homeless outreach event at the Salvation Army on Gate City Blvd. Over 30 volunteers spent New Year's Day providing warm meals and warm clothing to the homeless and less fortunate in Greensboro. 


For many people like Drucilla Edwards, last year was pretty rough and they are looking for a better year in 2020.

"Me and my family we've just been down and out and things haven't been as good as they have been before but you know god is with us and god is working on us and taking care of us and doing better with us," Edwards said. 

Edwards told Spectrum News, this was a huge blessing for everyone who is going through a struggle. 

In prior years, the group has conducted the event on Christmas. This is the first tim they have spent New Year's Day working to help those hurting in the community.

Members like Jordan Waters said it's worth it.

"There's people out here that actually care. There's people out here that actually want to do good in this world and they're willing to give their heart, their money, and their time for it so that's what we're here for," Waters said.

The group is looking forward to doing this again next year.
