Charlotte church holding free drive-thru pizza party for families in need

Simpson-Gillespie United Methodist Church is inviting those in need of a hot meal to its drive-thru pizza party from 6 to 7 p.m. June 4.

“This event will serve as a major outreach ministry during this time of health and economic crises,” the church said in an email. “Our hope is that the community will realize that even though the church building is empty, the church members care for them and want to help them through this crisis.”

The event will be held in the church’s parking lot at 3545 Beatties Ford Road.

Participants are encouraged to practice social distancing during the event by remaining in their vehicles. Organizers will hand each car that drives through a boxed pizza while supplies last.
