One local church is on a mission to help those in need in Jackson. Members of the Cornerstone Pentecostal Church gave away free food, water, and clothing. The congregation has been collecting items to donate for the past few weeks. Local businesses also partnered with church members donating household items and other necessities. It's the church's first annual give away, and they said they plan to give more.
Minister Butch King said, "We just wanted the community to know that we care. There is a lot of hurting people our there, unemployed, homeless, and we just wanted them to know that we care and we want to give."
A church member said more than 100 people stopped by to donate and receive supplies. They said whatever is left will be donated at their next give away.
