Central makes impact in community
Placeholder Image
Being a central location for all of Warren County, Central Church of Christ members have made it their mission to help those in need, with their benevolence helping hundreds each year.Along with opening their benevolence building each Thursday morning to give the needy people of Warren County clothes and other staples of life, Central also holds its Food and Raiment Day each November just before Thanksgiving. This year was no exception as hundreds flocked to the church for a good meal and clothes.“They were lined up around the corner when we opened the doors this morning,” said Joe Braxton, one of the driving forces behind the church’s benevolence mission. “I’m sure the economy has its affects on people.”Braxton estimated a little over 200 people took advantage of the clothing giveaway this past Saturday during Food and Raiment Day.“A major part of the clothes we give away are donated by the church, but we also get help from members of the community who don’t attend church here,” Braxton said, noting the benevolence center works year round to make sure clothes are available to those in need.
