About 50 different churches and groups gathered yesterday to provide assistance to St. Louis residents living in poverty.
Services offered included voter registration, resume services, back to school and youth sports physicals and other health services.
Organizers said it took around a year to plan and coordinate the event with Convoy of Hope, a national faith-based anti-poverty organization.
Bishop Lawrence Wooten said it brought together religious groups that haven’t worked together in the past.
