“It is our way of inviting to people to the festival, which will happen on Feb. 21 at American Memorial Park,” Rose Adams of Saipan Community Church said.

Boxes of clothes were given away to community members who dropped by the Kilili Pavillion from 6 a.m. to 8 a.m. on Saturday. Also distributed for free were bedsheets and pillow cases donated by Kanoa Resort.

Adams said this is their second 3G event. The first was held on Dec. 29.

As for the Marianas Festival of Hope, Adams said Grammy-winning artist Michael W. Smith and the Tommy Coomes Band will be the guest entertainers.

The festival’s main feature, she added, will be the message of hope that will be delivered by Franklin Graham, the son of late evangelist Rev. Billy Graham and president and chief executive officer of the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association.

Franklin Graham is also president and CEO of Samaritan’s Purse, an international Christian relief and evangelism organization, that provided relief goods to thousands of families on Saipan and Tinian after Super Typhoon Yutu devastated both islands in Oct. 2018.
