PINEVILLE, La.-- UM Men of First UMC honored first responders in the community by presenting 75 Strength for Service to God and Country books to officers of the Pineville Police Department and the Pineville substation of the Rapides Parish Sheriff’s Department.
The project was funded by a barbecue that raised $1,100. The men also donated $200 to Grace Camp, $300 to The Pineville Youth Center, and $200 to The Society of St. Andrew.
