New Bern's Religious Community Services making room to help more people
NEW BERN, Craven County —
Big changes are happening at a shelter and soup kitchen in New Bern.
Construction is underway at Religious Community Services of New Bern. What's going on now in the next year is a complete remodeling of RCS.
A new community kitchen, built to serve at a greater capacity than before, is where people will be able to drop off their donations. Also in the works is increased room to house more families as well as veterans. It's part of a comprehensive plan that took a lot of behind-the-scenes work.
"I am absolutely thrilled," said Juliet Rogers, Executive Director of RCS. "It's going to be probably one of the biggest things I ever do in my life.
"And it's a God thing, it's definitely God-focused and I want to give him a lot of praise because we couldn't not have made this project without his love for us and then the community's love for RCS."
