The West Monroe Assembly of God delivered 3,000 pre-boxed meals to the less fortunate, handicapped and elderly throughout the area.
"What we're doing is targeting the lesser fortunate areas, Section 8 housing areas, people who we know struggle," said Pastor Shane Warren.
Volunteers spent months preparing for this event.The church spent weeks cooking and preparing the holiday-style meals. Hundreds of pounds of food -- including corn, green beans, and bread -- were packed into boxes and loaded into a huge trailer.
As the food was delivered throughout the day, the trailer needed to come back to the church to reload, and hit the road again for deliveries.
Warren says the holidays can be tough for some, and that the church just wants to make a difference in the community, one meal at a time.
"We feel like at that time we can just step in and just be a beacon of hope and love and light to them," Warren said. "And maybe cheer them up and give them a great holiday."
The volunteers delivered to over 30 different locations in Monroe and West Monroe.
The church has more charity events planned for the holidays. In December, they plan to donate toys and other gifts to children in schools within low-income neighborhood in the area.
