“If we can have 2021 have a fresh start for a lot of people, and they feel blessed, loved, they feel they’re not in this by themselves, that would be an awesome way for us to be who we’re called to be,” Pastor Brian Edmunds said.

Edmunds said the church uses these giveaways to connect with the Pittsburgh community, especially during these tough times as the pandemic continues.
