WHEELING, W.Va. --


The annual Bethlehem Apostolic Temple Church Food Basket Giveaway is slated for this Saturday starting at 10 a.m.

For more than 20 years, the church has been putting together baskets to help those in need. Last year, the church was able to distribute 300 to 400 baskets for Thanksgiving.

The basket giveaway is done on a first-come, first-serve basis. The baskets are assembled “a la carte” style, and those in need are able to pick what they would like.

Rev. Darrell Cummings of the church said the effort is in hopes of helping people have a “spirit of Thanksgiving.”

Cummings said it’s for “people who are going through great struggles, people who just don't have enough and people who are striving. We just want to give them some kind of hope -- hope in God, hope in themselves, hope in the community -- that better days are coming.”
