As I left the office this afternoon in search of some news, I found Pastor Marty MacDonald operating a fork lift, hoisting a large container of adult diapers into a small pick up truck.
A whole crew of people were outside The City Church warehouse loading up cars, vans and trucks with food, household cleaners, shampoo and other necessities. MacDonald said his church was distributing about 50,000 lbs of items today.
Representatives from churches from throughout WNY were retrieving the good to distribute in their communities. They came to Batavia from Niagara, Penn Yan, Arcadia, Akron, Rochester, Churchville and North Tonawanda, and other towns.
"They will take these items back to their communities to help people in these tough economic times," MacDonald said.
He said distributions of this scale happen about every six to eight weeks.
