FARMVILLE – A Christmas giveaway earlier this week blessed many families who are struggling in hopes of providing a happier holiday season.

God’s Final Call and Warning Ministry (GFCW) hosted a giveaway for families in Farmville on Monday, Nov. 28. The ministry set up at the Farmville Farmers’ Market, located at 213 North Street, giving away appliances, kitchenware and other household products.

Within only two hours, from 2 to 4 p.m., the ministry was able to serve more than 300 families, to help relieve some of the stress that comes along with the holiday season.

“The rising inflation and the impact of the pandemic greatly impacted the lives of the many already struggling residents of Farmville,” said Rocky Twyman, one of GFCW’s volunteers.

At this giveaway, Farmville residents received food, beverages, chips and candy to help supply their holiday meals for their families. Along with food, the ministry also had household products, kitchenware and small

appliances available for those who needed them.

While residents collected their goods, volunteers were also present during the giveaway to give support by offering prayer for those who attended. There was also a prayer for food prices to come down as the constant rise is putting many families on hard times this year.
