ALTOONA, Pa. (WTAJ) — The Nehemiah Project in Altoona celebrated Memorial Day with a drive-thru barbecue lunch.
Folks lined up just in front of the Wright Place for Kids building on 11th Street.
Each meal included a burger and hot dog, three sides, a drink plus what they call a blessing box, which has extra food for those in need.
CEO Peter Joudry said rain or shine, they wanted to serve the community and share god’s love.
“Memorial Day is a day when we remember people who made sacrifices. Well, right now, the country as a nation is making some sacrifices, and we wanna kinda just be a part of blessing that’s ministering to people’s lives,” he said.
The Nehemiah Project served nearly 800 meals today to those in need.
