BALDWYN – The Baldwyn Boys and Girls Club enjoyed a special day last Thursday. Southern Diversified Industries treated the boys and girls to grilled hotdogs, chips and drinks. They were also given bracelets and ink pens. SDI’s Environmental/Safety and Community Involvement Director Allison Dugger read to the children. 

Mt. Nebo CME Church’s pastor Reverend Matthew Freeman, Sr. arrived with congregation members loaded with a variety of supplies, snacks and goodies for the club. 

“Every Auxiliary in the Church has a ministry they try to do every month. This month,  the Men and Women’s Ministries teamed together and wanted to do something for the Baldwyn Boys and Girls Club,” said Freeman, “Although it is the Men and Women’s Ministry that did this, members of the congregation were asked to donate items such as water, snacks , money to buy supplies as a group effort.”

Mt. Nebo has approximately 175 members attending church on Sundays. This week, they are joining with Baldwyn First Methodist Church members to fill food boxes for the Food Pantry Ministry. 

Baldwyn Boys and Girls Club Director Megan Welch said, “We appreciate everything our community does for our boys and girls. The children benefit and learn about giving and receiving. We are very thankful for what SDI and Mt. Nebo did for us today.”
