JAMESTOWN — “We have heard of families who are struggling. We just want to let them know they are not alone.”
With that in mind, Doors of Heaven Church is giving away face masks, sanitizer, produce and drinking water to the public from 11:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m., Saturday, or until supplies run out, in the church parking lot at 338 Falconer St.

“We wanted the community to be aware, we’re going to have this service where we are going to give out masks, we’re going to give out produce,sanitizer and water,” Lopez told WNYNewsNow.
Thanks to sponsors, Lopez said more than 500 cases of fresh produce will be available, along with a few hundred masks and 100 cases of water.
“We’ve actually had people knocking on our church door asking what time they should be there,” she said. “We’ve tried as much as we can to provide for families in need. It is a hard time that we are upon and they’re not alone.”
She said sponsors of this event include Doors of Heaven Church, the Hispanic Community Council and Council President Max Martin, Blackstone Advanced Technology, the Chautauqua Center, the United Way of the Southern Tier, Pastor Oscar Rivera and the Hispanic Pastors’ Association.
