TUPELO, Miss. (WTVA) - Members of the Christians on the Move to Evangelize gathered at Harrisburg Baptist Church in Tupelo on Tuesday to prepare hundreds of meals to help feed members of the community for Christmas.
Meals were prepared for the elderly, the homeless, jail inmates and others who could not provide their own Christmas Day meals in Lee County and the surrounding counties.
Volunteers from at least 4 churches in the area met to prepare meal boxes for the people in need.
"We do it to try and bring some joy to people wherever they are. We know it's not fun being incarcerated, but at least you can get one good meal, at least two good meals a year," said Bishop Willie Wilson of New Life Community Church of Deliverance.
