The First Ladies of Tennessee Headquarters Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction Church Of God In Christ presented a check for $5,000 to the Memphis Family Shelter last month.
The ladies held a benefit dinner Dec. 15 at the Double Tree Hotel, led by Dr. Mary Portis Hall, group president and wife of Bishop David Allen Hall.
The shelter is a refuge for women and children in need of safe and secure housing and related social service activities.
“This is the first of what we hope will be an annual event,” Dr. Hall said. “The Church Of God In Christ is concerned about serving our community and especially those most vulnerable in our society: children.”
