Monday Mission feeds the needy

Members of the youth group from Rolling Hills Baptist Church recently descended upon four local neighborhoods to collect food in support of needy families in Fayette County. All the food collected was donated to the Real Life Center in Peachtree City to stock its food pantry. The food drive was part of Rolling Hills’ Monday Mission program, a youth summer vacation program which is geared toward serving others.
