Operation Inasmuch set for April 19

On April 19, 12 Baptist churches in Brunswick County will join with hundreds of other churches across North Carolina in a statewide Operation Inasmuch Day, according to a news release.

Volunteers from all over the state will work together to provide assistance to those in need, including: working at food pantries, building wheelchair ramps, handyman repairs, care packages for soldiers and their families and taking blankets to nursing homes.

Operation Inasmuch began in 1995 at Snyder Memorial Baptist Church in Fayetteville under the direction of Pastor David Crocker. Operation Inasmuch community-wide events have occurred in 10 states and in other countries. This is the first statewide event.
