Several churches in the Sound District participated in a multi-denominational mask making project for their community. The Threads of Hope Ministry at Vanceboro UMC partnered with Beech Grove UMC, Epworth UMC, Holly Hill Pentecostal Holiness Church, and Juniper Chapel Original Free Will Baptist Church. Over 40 volunteers participated in the project, making over 3,000 masks. Distribution included 1,850 masks to medical and veterinary hospitals and clinics, 222 to fire and EMS departments, 124 to local and state agencies, 70 to local businesses, 64 to law enforcement, and over 600 to church families and the community at large-stretching from the capitol to the coast, and beyond North Carolina.
