BOONEVILLE, Miss. (WTVA) -- You won't find a shortage of boxes inside the Anchor of Life Ministries building in Booneville, both for the staff's upcoming move and their primary mission.
"I don't know anybody who can take $100 a feed as many people as we do, but I do know God can," volunteer Zilaphine George said.
On Saturday, those food boxes -- more than 60 of them -- will go out to families who need them,
At the same time, those who work for the ministry say their future isn't completely certain.
"It just all hit us [at] one time. That's all it took, and it's going to take some time to get built back up," volunteer Marsha Watson said.
Last month, strong winds ruined the pantry's roof, forcing the volunteers to use their church and other rooms to put together the food boxes.
Volunteers have located a building in downtown Booneville that they say has enough room for their food pantry, the thrift store that helps fund it and their church.
Now, they need the help of others to make it happen.
"Donate whatever they can, their time, money, just whatever they feel like would help out," George said. "I mean, even 50 cents would be a big help."
Thrift store manager Zadie Watson says they're putting together a benefit April 20 to raise money for the move and the building.
"We're gonna have singing all day, things for the kids to do, bake sales with food, then later in the evening we're going to have an auction," Zadie Watson said.
Their current landlord, George Houston, declined an on-camera interview, but says he wishes them all the best. He's even chosen not to charge them rent or electric bills since the damage.
However, the deadline to find a new place is drawing near. They have to be out by the end of April.
"We're here to do God's work, and if we can continue to do God's work, that is a big help. And that's all it's for, is to help people. That's what we're here for," Marsha Watson said.
The benefit will be held at the West Side Community Center at Booneville City Park.
It starts at 10 a.m.
