Friendship Baptist Church

This letter is written on behalf of the Friendship Baptist Church, the Sam’s Point and Coosaw Island Communities with the sincerest gratitude and accolades to Kelly’s Kitchen. Our very first “Pop-Up Food Pantry” was scheduled on October 17, 2020. On October 16th, a group of volunteers from the church along with Kelly’s Kitchen met to prepare in excess of 100 healthy food boxes for the community. The Pantry was a 100% success as we dispensed hundreds of pounds of fresh produce, dry goods, drinks, and other healthy non-perishable foods!

The 2nd Food Pantry was focused on providing a healthy Thanksgiving Food Box for those in the Community that were less fortunate. On November 21, 2020, we prepared approximately 125 food boxes with fresh produce (sweet potatoes, collard greens, onions, etc.), staples of stuffing mix, brown gravy mix, and rice. To make the meal complete we provided each family with a fresh (frozen) turkey. Again, the Food Pantry was a complete and God-blessed success.

We would like to express our heartfelt gratitude to Kelly’s Kitchen for their kind-heartedness in helping us fulfill God’s instructions to help others who are less fortunate. We are eternally grateful for their contribution and willingness to help. May God continue to bless and keep them."
