CANTON, Texas (KLTV) - First Baptist Church Canton gave away free gas to the community Sunday. The church said they set aside a block of money to give back to the community for Christmas each year. This is the first year they’ve done a gas giveaway.

The church partnered with Mr. D’s gas station gave away up to $50 of free gas per car, while supplies lasted. Drivers waited in line in the Sumner RV parking lot behind the gas station.

Darrell Jobe, got free gas and said, “I’m disabled and I get a limited check every month so this is a real blessing. It’s hard for me to fill up a truck.”

Rod Hite is the minister of music at the church and said they wanted to do something that would impact people for the better.

“Gas going up the way it is, it just seems like that would be an easy way to do it. We’ve done things where we’ve given away food, you know, ministry things in the community but this just seemed like the perfect thing to do this year,” Hite said.

The church was able to fill up between 250 and 300 tanks.
