Cumberland County group distributes 'boxes of love' for Thanksgiving

ABC11 Together highlights the strength of the human spirit, good deeds, community needs, and how our viewers can help
HOPE MILLS, N.C. (WTVD) -- Dozens gathered inside Ambassadors for Christ Worship Center Friday night to receive a Thanksgiving box of love.

Organizers told ABC11 the donations are primarily for Hurricane Florence victims or simply people who have fallen on hard times.

"It means a great deal. Thanks be to God for providing. I do work, but this helped out a great deal," said recipient David High.

"This shows a lot of love for the less fortunate including myself. I was able to get a box, which was a blessing for me and my family," said Tameka Mathis.

Organizers told ABC11 this is the third year they were able to donate. The first year they gave away 50 boxes of love. The second year 100 boxes were donated and this year more than 200 were given out.
