MARIETTA — A local Methodist church is seeking help to continue their mission of feeding the homeless in Marietta.

For 12 years, New Hope Mission has fed between 100 and 115 needy people both breakfast and lunch every Sunday, totaling more than 5,000 meals since the effort began.

The effort is done on a shoestring budget through a purely volunteer work force, led by Debra Hawkins.

At 6:30 p.m. today, the Union Chapel UMC off Fowler Circle will have a benefit auction to raise money and awareness. Call the Rev. John Wood, pastor of Union Chapel, at (404) 580-2416 for more information.
