Syracuse, NY (NCC News) – Clean laundry is one thing that most people see as a very basic human thing that everyone should have and deserves. For some people, it’s not that easy. For various reasons, people have trouble getting easy access to clean laundry.

Victory Temple Fellowship Church is trying to make it easier for people. They are hosting a laundry supply giveaway on Saturday. This will allow families in need to get the right supplies to have clean laundry.

Reverend H. Bernard Alex is the Bishop and Senior Pastor of the church. He thinks that putting on this event is a big deal for the church. It is different than other things they do as an organization.

“This really is putting our faith at our feet. Not just being a church but being a place of community empowerment,” he said.

Alex wants to see some connection between his work and the University.

“I would love that… to have the University student body engage in the community and help do this,” said Alex.

They will be accepting donations Friday night from 5-7 PM at the church.

The giveaway will take place at Victory Temple Fellowship Church on Saturday from 10 AM to 2 PM. The church is located at 817 Willow Street.
