UPDATE: The gas station is at the Kroger at 2801 Hicks Road in Chesterfield.
A local church is giving away $7,000 in free gasoline Saturday morning.
Mt. Gilead Full Gospel International Ministries in Chesterfield will be announcing the location at 9 a.m. Saturday morning, and 8News will spread the word here on WRIC.com, on Facebook and on air.
Mt. Gilead volunteers will man the pumps at the yet undisclosed location. Church leaders hope the event lifts a small financial burden for area citizens.
"The goal of the event is to lend a helping hand to those who have been challenged with rising gas and food prices," said Bishop Daniel Robertson, Senior Pastor. "By meeting this basic need, someone will be encouraged to know that God cares."
Mt. Gilead hosted a similar giveaway in 2008, in which they gave away $9,000 in gas.
