Church Members Volunteer during Spring Break

Meridian, Miss.
A Meridian church is involved in charity and service work during this spring break.

Members of Jubilee Mennonite Church spent time volunteering Wednesday at LOVE's Kitchen.

Giving of their time and helping other people are goals of the church. Spring break offers the opportunity, especially for young people out of school, to make the lives of people in their community a little bit better.

"And they get a lot out of it and we do, too," said church member April Dardar. "You know, it's not just for the organization, but it's for us to be able to actually put hands and feet to what we believe in."

Members of Jubilee Mennonite Church are also involved this week in repairing a roof, beautifying neighborhoods, and packing food to be sent to the hungry.
