Bag of Blessings provides to less fortunate

BOWLING GREEN, Ky.- It is the season of giving, and one organization did just that in their annual event held over the weekend.

Bag of Blessings is hosted by Curbside Ministries, whose purpose is to share the love of Christ to the less fortunate and refugee populations in Bowling Green.

Attendees are gifted food, toiletries and everything to make a better Christmas.

Children are also given a stuffed animal, toys, books and clothes to complete their Bag of Blessings.

For some, this event is their very first Christmas coming from other countries.

Other activities included a movie to watch while waiting, and even an appearance by Santa.

An estimated 1,200 people were in attendance to receive their very own bag of blessings.
