Ministry helps needy families

Broad Street Ministry made it possible for about 90 needy families to put presents under the tree and a hot meal on the table this Christmas.

The ministry held its 10th annual toy giveaway Monday, where about 100 volunteers helped wrap gifts and prepare bags of groceries to be handed out to the families.

Families pre-registered for the event and detailed what types of gifts their children were wishing for this year. Each member of the family went home with at least three gifts, said Ministry director Kaye Morris.

They were also provided with a turkey or a ham and a bag of groceries and sweets so parents could fix a warm meal at their home on the holiday.

Morris said families must show need and be employed part time or have been unemployed for less than one year.
