A Kanawha County church made its presence known in Charleston on Sunday.
Hundreds of people in the Charleston area got to enjoy a free concert and a little shopping at the Southridge Church.
The Southridge Church had collected clothes, backpacks, blankets and other items for the last several months. On Sunday, church members distributed those items to people in need.
"As we were promoting it downtown, everyone was saying, 'Oh, yeah, we know all about it, we're going to be there.' And we probably got about 70, 80, 90 people from our church here just trying to serve people and try to connect with them and let them know that there's a God who loves them," Pastor Marc Sundstorm said.
Each winter, the church also holds an "Impact Charleston." This event was its first "summer edition," and the church plans to hold more giveaways in the future.
