Amidst the crisis that our world finds itself in is a local church group that threw a parade to spread some hope to those that are currently practicing social distancing. The parade went through several neighborhoods on April, 8, around 5 p.m., distributing candy out to local children.
“We usually meet together each week, but because of COVID-19, we haven’t been able to do that,” said Bridgette Mcbride, the organizer of the event, “we thought this would be a fun way to share some love and joy to many others around our area.”
The event was put on by the Glines 6th Ward of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and was primarily organized by the women of the church.
“I thought that this was a great way to give everyone a bit of joy,” said Cambree Mcbride, another one of the organizers of the event, “we did this to show everyone that, even through this crisis, we still care and we still want to spread love even if its something as small as a parade.”
Small, spontaneous events like this will truly help get the people of the world through this current situation.
