Congresswoman Sewell Hosts Holiday Food Giveaway in Wilcox Co.
From the West Alabama Newsroom–
People in Wilcox County struggling through the pandemic — got a helping hand from Congresswoman Terri Sewell.
Sewell held a drive thru food giveaway at Mt. Sinai Missionary Baptist Church in the Alberta community Wednesday morning.
Sewell says its important to help people struggling through the pandemic — especially during the holidays.
“Tis the season to give and there’s no greater need in the Black Belt right now, than the food insecurity,” said Sewell.
“It was a problem before the pandemic, it’s even grown more given this COVID-19 pandemic. So, we’re just trying to do our part. It’s an honor for me to represent Alabama’s 7th congressional district — and as a daughter of the Black Belt, I wanted to do my part with this food giveaway.”
Sewell also hosted holiday food giveaways this week — in Selma, Uniontown and Hope Hull.
