MATTHEWS, NC (WBTV) – Drivers may get a break from high fuel costs Friday as a local church hands out free $20 gas cards.
Last year when New Beginnings Church in Matthews decided to buy drivers gas in celebration of Good Friday, it caused a traffic nightmare.
Hundreds of cars lined up at a local gas station hoping for the free fuel bottlenecking the roads, and making travel close to impossible.
This year, church leaders have a better idea.
Instead of manning the pumps and clogging traffic, leaders will be handing out $20 gift cards that can be redeemed for free gas.
But in this case, it pays to be early.
Only 350 gift cards will be available. Once they’re gone, they’re gone.
You can pick one up at New Beginnings Church starting at noon Friday. They’re located at 7027 Stillwell Road in Matthews.
It’s off of Margaret Wallace Road in between Idlewild Road and Lebanon Road.
