BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - It was a very special day this Saturday for a group ready to bring change and hope to the community.
"There is nothing too big when you have God on your side," said Dr. Pamela Greece, a coordinator for GM Community Outreach Center. "And we have put much time to it. It has been great and it has been fun and it has been long awaited for," Greece said.
The GM Community Outreach Center officially opened its doors Saturday morning.
The center, founded by Pastor Kelvin McGee and others from "Goodness and Ministry" will help reach out to those in need by offering several assistance programs including health services, growth and business training, food hand-out programs and much more.
