‘Beyond the Walls’ event benefits community

PORTSMOUTH, Va. (WAVY) – Food, fun and helping the less fortunate brought people out Saturday in Portsmouth. Several churches hosted the Beyond Our Walls Community and Family Day.

People donated food, clothes, and even school supplies to help the less fortunate. There were also health screenings and safety lessons for kids.

Organizers said the event was all about helping the community

“We got the name ‘Beyond The Walls’ because we’re always inside the walls, but we wanted to come out beyond the walls and to be here for the community, and to make them know that we are here for them,” explained Pastor Jeff Grant, Miracle Christian Center.

The groups also held a tent revival three nights this week.
