Church delivers food to home-bound residents

Posted: Updated:
FLINT, MI (WNEM) -

A Mid-Michigan church is helping people who can't leave their homes due to a physical ailment.

"What we're doing here is we are servicing in-bound individuals," said Sandra Jones, with the Greater Holy Temple Church in Flint.

The church started distributing water to Flint residents last January. When it became evident there were plenty of outlets for water distribution, Jones decided maybe the church could fill another need - delivering food to those who are home-bound.

It's for people who have temporary physical ailments and can't leave their houses.

"We have in our congregation people who are on dialysis, people who have had hip replacements, heart surgery, but they cannot come and pick those items up," Jones said.

Her husband Bishop Roger Jones is head of the church and he wholeheartedly supports the program.

"We want to provide food and water and care packages to those people who cannot get here at the church," he said.

The church made 15 deliveries on Monday to the home-bound and on Wednesday they will make 20 more. They hope to make even more deliveries next week.
