They've spent countless hours collecting belongings for it and Saturday, St. Mark Baptist Church in collaboration with Arkansas Baptist College gave back to the community.
Coats, clothes, toys and books all given away free to those in need. Senior Pastor of St. Marks Baptist Church, Phillip Pointer, says this event is as important for the participants as it is for those receiving the items.
"It's such an important thing for the students and the church to be a part of this. We've been working on this for a great number of days leading up to this. We've collected clothes in the church, around the church," says Pastor Pointer.
Pastor Pointer says groups of parishioners even canvassed the neighborhood picking up trash.
