Spartanburg, S.C. (WSPA)- The WSSL country music morning radio hosts Bill Ellis and Beth Bradley are teaming up again with Miracle Hill Ministries for the 14th year to fry turkeys to provide meals for the community in need.
Miracle Hill Ministries will fry 500 turkeys to feed more than 2500 people — families and adults in the rescue mission, as well families in need community-wide.
Sandy Furnell, with Miracle Hill Ministries, said the ministry isn’t able to have the large number of volunteers they’ve had in years past to help fry and prepare the turkeys, due to efforts to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 in the shelter. She said they will attempt to cut the turkeys and cool them in a semi-truck donated by Swift in order to maintain a safe temperature for the food.
Greenville Rescue Mission will help provide these meals in to-go containers.
Furnell said the community will also not be invited in to have dinner with residents like in years past either.
Miracle Hill is also partnering with Greenville Church without Walls, Salvation Army, Miller Place, Archibald Rutledge and New Life Baptist Church to distribute turkeys to additional people in need.
A large way the public can still help those in need is by holding non-perishable food drives at their church, business or as part of a family fundraiser. Register your food drive with Miracle Hill at https://miraclehill.org/
The food collected will help feed the many more that need the items in the community, due to loss of a job or COVID-19. These food items collected will be distributed all year long.
