Prayer vigils held in Bennettsville

Various council members, elected officials, religious and community members joined together Monday to pray for the community.
Three prayer vigils were held at Marlboro Court Apartments, near Evergreen Cemetery on Hudson Street and near Eastside Grocery. They were held in areas where shootings had taken place in recent weeks.
Spearheaded by Bennettsville Police Chief Kevin Miller and Sword of Truth Pastor Bishop R. Chris Brown, the prayers and words of encouragement were broadcast to citizens with a sound system.
Brown said they wanted to do something to show the faith community, law enforcement and the community as a whole were working together to make sure the community knew they cared.

MARTi riders offered fresh produce

MARTI riders will have access to free, fresh fruit and vegetables because of a new Healthy Produce Initiative.
The initiative is from funding from the Healthy People, Healthy Carolinas initiative through the Duke Endowment, and the Marlboro Empower Action Team.
Patrick Bines, director of the Northeastern Rural Health Network, said it was an opportunity to address food insecurity in the area. 
“We know it is a big need especially due to COVID-19,” he said.
A box containing bags of produce will be placed on the MARTi buses for the next nine weeks through June 30. Community members can take the bags with no questions asked.
