PRAIRIEVILLE, LA (NBC33) — A Prairieville pastor wants to give back to the community.
That's why Little Prairie Baptist Church held a health and safety fair Saturday. Dozens of organizations came out to give out free information, and even our own Emily Turner gave out DNA kits and Stormtracker 33 Hurricane Guides to prepare the community for this upcoming hurricane season, which starts Sunday.
"These things are awesome things. This is something for my mom to give to the police any time I am gone or something bad happens to me, and this is a hurricane guide," said Damian Anderson. "So, if anything bad happens to me, I'll be good."
"We do lots of community events, but this is our first time to ever do a community health fair, both for the public and for the churches, and to try to be a service to our community," said Pastor Bruce Worrell of Little Prairie Baptist Church.
Life Source hospice services helped sponsor the event. Worrell said the fair took more than six months to get together. This is the first one they've held, but he hopes it won't be the last.
