A local church is reaching out to it's neighbors to chip in.
Last year The Summit Church in North Little Rock pulled together and filled around 300 boxes full of food for Boxes of Love. This year they stepped it up a notch.
"This year we decided to take it outside the church walls and our small groups. Whatever area they live in, their cul-de-sac, their neighborhood, apartment complex to take a box and invite them to be a part of it. From their family to give to a family in need in the Little Rock area," explains Kyle Reno, pastor of college and mission ministries at The Summit Church.
In the box of love local families can find all the traditional holiday goodies, "It has from rice to cake mix. They will provide a roasting hen in there. Beans, corn, things like that. All kinds of holiday stuff," adds Reno.
Over 600 boxes were collected over the weekend.
That's twice as many boxes compared to last year.
"Everyone responded so well. Everyone responded to the chance to give," says Reno.
And it wasn't just families that chipped in...
"We decided to participate in the boxes of love program," explains Lesa Baxter with Arkansas Baptist Elementary.
Some students at Arkansas Baptist Elementary designated boxes of love as their mission project.
"We just wanted to do something for those less fortunate than others and this is what we thought would be the best to do," adds Baxter.
And out of the 600 plus boxes, Arkansas Baptist Elementary filled 35.
