Members from the Bell Branch church passed out more than 60 sleeping bags on Jan. 9.
The Ellicott City (Md.) church, one of four donation centers in the Chesapeake Conference for personal protective equipment, was featured on local ABC affiliate WMAR-2 News Baltimore last week. Paulo Macena, lead pastor of Ellicott City church, spoke with the media to share the positive community response during the personal protective equipment donation drive sponsored in part by Chesapeake Adventist Community Services.
“As they are learning more about it, they are coming,” said Pastor Paulo Macena. “Yesterday, I think someone came… one person…and dropped (off) a hundred N95 masks.”
