Memphis' The Word Church is using the spirit of Easter to give free food and clothing to more than 400 needy families.
Congregation members are calling the event "Get Up Week". This Wednesday from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. families will be able to pick up the free items at the church located at 3852 Park Avenue.
However, you must have a voucher to participate. The pastor said vouchers can be picked up at the church Monday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.
"So the people will be able to experience the love that our ministry wants to push out from the ministry to let people know that there is hope for tomorrow. Not only will it be the food basket given out, we'll have doctors on site who will be doing health screenings. We will have attorneys who will be here sharing with us, who will be sharing legal information," said pastor Aaron Litzey.
Litzsey says you can also find out about jobs and housing at their event by emailing him at email@example.com.
