The goal of this event is to support the community during this time of uncertainty.

Partners for this event Included: Gentilly-Paris Shell Gas Station, Absolute Health & Wellness, Wright & Gray Personal Injury Law Firm, Garden Dr.’s, Congressman Cedric L. Richmond, and Senator Troy A. Carter

Bishop Darryl S. Brister said, “Beacon Light wants to continue to be a light in our community and this event speaks to that. Additionally, we recognize that black businesses matter. That’s why we’ve chosen to support two local African-American owned establishments; Gentilly-Paris Shell Gas Station and We Dat’s Chicken and Shrimp.”

Brister also remarked “During these challenging times, many people are dealing with the pressure of being unemployed, having a lack of income, and the racial tensions in this world. Our partners join us in our belief that we must stick together as a community, now more than ever and by providing fuel for the journey to the community, we are doing just that.”
