Christmas in the park

JACKSON, MS (Mississippi News Now) -

During the holiday season, it's not uncommon to see churches give back to those less fortunate.

Today's Christmas in the park was no exception.

 Volunteers provided gifts and a hot meal to residents at Poindexter park in Jackson.

And they say it's part of their outreach efforts...bringing the love of god to others in need.

"We have become family with residents here, and so to us, this is just a big family gathering, where we're gonna have a sit-down dinner with them. We're gonna have music, fun, and then at the end, we're gonna give toys to the children."

The event is sponsored by the healing place of Jackson, a Christian group that also holds church services at the park every week.
