The First Baptist Church, along with several others in the community, will hold the annual Warm the World event Saturday beginning at 8 a.m. at First Baptist, 125 S. John St.

Begun four years ago by First Baptist, the project is an outreach effort by the church to help Wayne County's homeless and needy with warm clothing, sleeping bags and blankets.

Church members and other volunteers also will serve a hot breakfast to those attending.

"They'll sit down and visit with them and have conversations with people they don't know and just love them," said Sherry Archibald, one of the organizers. "Just being there to share the love of Christ, that's something anybody can do."

In addition the food and clothing, there also will be a table with information about resources available in the community, such as domestic violence help, literacy programs, food stamps and the N.C. Employment Security Commission.

For more information or to volunteer, call the church at 919-735-2516.
