WEST POINT, Miss. (WTVA) — It's called the "We Care Committee," and the founder is a local businesswoman who provides health care services in people's homes.

On Tuesday a group of volunteers handed out hundreds of boxes of donated food to the elderly, disabled and the needy.

The group's founder says it's a small way to show many people God's love during this Christmas season.

Luezarah Robinson said, "It means a lot to me to help people. Showing love is the most important part for me."

The boxes contain crackers, soup, and other basic food items.

Recipients had little to say but tell us they're very thankful.

One resident said, "It's a blessing."

Another resident said, "I thank God for this day and it means a lot to me."

For the many volunteers who sort and pack all the food items and then hand them out, they say this day is also a blessing for them.

Elder Shelia Fair of West Point said, "The Word of God says better to give than to receive. I'm there giving and we're here to receive the blessing God has given to us."

Sister Bulter of West Point said, "We just felt it was important that because the organizer was doing such a good thing in the community that she gets the help she needs."

Shirley Blair of West Point said, "You do your work for God and he will bless you over and over and over."

This effort to help the needy in the Golden Triangle actually started about nine years ago in Sturgis.

Organizers say they hope it will continue for years to come and only grow in the number of people helped.
