Metro Detroit Church to Give Away $10K in Gas Easter Weekend

New Life Family Church gave back to the community with a FREE gas giveaway to the first 1,000 customers Saturday.

The $10,000 gas giveaway took place at two separate locations; the Valero Gas Station (corner of McNichols and Conant) located at 3640 E. McNichols and the BP Gas Station (corner of Davison and Conant) at 10340 E. Conant Rd. on Detroit's East Side.

The gas giveaway was a first come, first serve basis. Officers from the Detroit Police Department were be on location to assist with traffic control. The gas giveaway also serves as an outreach program and extends an invitation to the community to fellowship at New Life Family Church on Easter "Resurrection" Sunday.

"We know that there is a need and it is our desire at New Life and the city's church to ensure people experience the love of God one random act of kindness at a time. I want to remind the city we are not on empty and what better way to show the love of God then by filling them up", says Pastor Welton Smith of New Life Family Church.
