A local facility that is well known for helping out community members, received some help of their own Saturday.

Members of the Meridian Alumni Chapter of Kappa Alpha Psi and its mentor program, Meridian Kappa League, hosted a car wash Saturday morning. From 8:30 to 11 in the morning, they were out scrubbing as many cars as possible, knowing that it would pay off in the end. The car wash was held at L.O.V.E's Kitchen.

Tommy Winston is the community service chair for the group. He says L.O.V.E's Kitchen deserves help since they give it.

"Car washes are just good ways to get the community out. It's a wonderful day. So we wanted to involved people in a day such as this. L.O.V.E's Kitchen because of what they stand for and what they do. We believe in service in the public's interest and that is exactly what L.O.V.E'S Kitchen is about. They are wonderful for helping to feed the hungry and that is an amazing adventure and that's what we want to support. Any that is doing something positive we want to support it with our efforts as well," says Winston.

The cost was $5 for cars and $10 for trucks. People could also pay in the form of canned goods. For ten of them, cars could be washed and trucks could do the same for 20 canned goods. The funds and goods go to L.O.V.E's Kitchen.

    Peabody: Why don't you go stand at the door and administer urine screens and breathalyzer tests to the folks wanting to eat. You should get on your knees and thank GOD you are not an addict.....Not everyone who appears to be drunk/high is.....You don't know someones situation so get off your soap box and stop being judgemental. You have a hard heart....

    When they stop serving to people who are obviously drunk/high I will then support them. Enabling these people who chose to spend what little money they have on drugs and alcohol instead of food is wrong in my opion.

    GOD bless everyone who helps out LOVES......Did you know that Walmart donates to Feeding America. The 2 Meridian WallyWorlds donations go to LOVES....Walmart still stinks but let's give a big hats off to the Dept. Managers who take the time to process their donations 3 days a week instead of throwing it out...They are OVERWORKED to the max but they still make time for it.......
