The official dedication of the Blanche and Blanche Pantry will be done on Saturday, December 19, 2020 at 10:00 am.
It is named after two stalwarts in the Cane Garden Bay community and Members of the Church Mrs Blanche Cline (deceased) and Mrs Blanche Blyden who, according to Mrs Turnbull, both had a giving spirit.
First Lady of the Cane Garden Bay Baptist Church (CGBBC), Mrs Marion Turnbull said one of the important missions of the church is 'Give' and the pantry aligns well with this mantra.
In a press release from the church on December 17, 2020, Mrs Turnbull said one of the important missions of the church is “Give” and the pantry aligns well with this mantra.
“For years, the opening of a pantry has been on my heart, In fact since, 1994. When I started Social Work in 2004 I was exposed to the realities of the lives of others, and more and more I saw the need for us as a Church to extend such humanitarian services to persons who are in need.”
She explained that the experiences of COVID-19 presented an opportunity for her to push even more for the church to move the plan from paper to reality to help change lives through giving.
Mrs Turnbull added that the CGBBC has always been giving and this is another systematic way to impact the community, more specifically give back to the community.
According to the press relase, the public and members of the media are invited to attend the opening ceremony at the Cane Garden Bay Baptist Church.
“Wearing of masks is mandatory,” the release highlighted.
