GREENSBORO, N.C. — Daystar Church in Greensboro had plans to open a community center in their gym at the end of March but when the coronavirus pandemic hit their city, they pushed that deadline up to serve.
“We were planning to start at the end of the month,” Dr. Allen Holmes, the pastor, said. “But with the crisis, man, we said, we’ve got to open today, people need our help now and this week we provided meals every day to hundreds of families.”
On the first day of their outreach the church served hot meals and delivered to groceries to more than 400 cars that drove through the church’s parking lot. They fed more than 1,100 people. Daystar teamed up with the Out of the Garden project to make it happen.
