With God’s help, the Beans and Rice ministry will continue through donations,” Welch said.

    The Molino thrift shop on the corner of Hwy 29 and Molino Road also has a wonderful ministry. Perhaps those in need will go there now.

    It’s a shame. The money was going to a good cause.

    What a shame to see a store that helped the needy – go out of business. There are a lot of poor people in this county where stores like this help out. Not to forget the families that loose everything to a fire or tornado. God Bless everyone for their efforts to supply the needy. My wife and I will get by there to check out some of their last remaining items before closing tomorrow.
