The Bridge City Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce that The Bridge City/Orangefield Ministerial Alliance has been named Business Member of the Month for January.  Director Melissa Isaacs, volunteers Melissa Pitts and Tammy Dunahoe accepted the award, sponsored by Sabine River Ford, from Ambassador and Board Member Wanda McGraw at the January Coffee hosted by Orangefield ISD.  The Bridge City/Orangefield Ministerial Alliance received gifts from several local merchants.

The Ministerial Alliance is a non-profit organization that helps those in our community who are economically disadvantaged. Many people receive food assistance through their pantry program. They also offer other services such as: rent, utility, and medical prescriptions for those individuals who are in an emergency crisis situation. In November, thanksgiving boxes are handed out to elderly in need. They also have a wonderful Christmas program for children. The children in need receive toys, clothes, and shoes for Christmas. Director Melissa Isaacs said, “The number of people in need continues to be on the rise. We are very thankful for a wonderful community that is happy to join hands with the Alliance as we continue to fight hunger.”  Hours of operation are Monday and Wednesday 9 am-12 pm. Extended hours: first Monday of every month from 57 pm.
