First Baptist Church at 1810 Martin Luther King Jr. Blvd. in Gainesville is launching a new initiative this year to feed and clothe those in need.

The church will begin hosting its “Love-in-Action” free dinners for one and all every first and third Wednesday from 5 to 7 p.m. beginning in February.

The church will also offer a free clothing exchange on four Saturdays this year (March 30, June 29, Sept. 28 and Dec. 28) between 10 a.m. and noon.

Pastor Isaac Whitehead said the church is looking for donors and contributors, “as well as those who may want to help serve.”
