On August 3, 2017 members of the Yorktown Waters Edge Church handed out care packages to the inmates and detainees at the Virginia Peninsula Regional Jail. The packages consisted of shampoo, lotion, deodorant, tooth brush, tooth paste and socks. Church members are participating in Love Week activities that included giving back to the community in numerous ways. This is the church's second year providing the packages. The Jail's population expressed their appreciation for the packages as church members greeted each inmate. One member summed it up by saying, "we know how much this means to them and we look forward to next year."
