Glory Fellowship Baptist Church in Jasper is hosting “Caring for Cordova” Saturday afternoon at the old Cordova ball field.

Adam Brewer, pastor of Glory Fellowship Baptist Church, said the event will be similar to the Operation Thanksgiving event the church sponsors each year.

“On Thanksgiving, we offer a free meal to people that need it,” he said. “That’s what we are doing here. We’re going to have tons of food for anyone that wants it. You don’t have to be from Cordova to come enjoy it, but we wanted to do this in Cordova to help the people in that area who are still feeling the effects from the tornado.”

The Alabama Seafood Association is donating food for the event, Brewer said.

“They are bringing all kinds of seafood,” he said. “We’ll have shrimp, oysters, fish and whatever else you can think of. We’ll also have plenty of sides as well as dessert and fresh watermelon.”

The church will also be giving away cleaning supplies while they last and many door prizes, Brewer said. For children, the event will feature several inflatables and members of Glory Fellowship will be holding a small baseball clinic.

“We want to show the people in Cordova how much we care about them. That’s what this is all about,” Brewer said.
