Local church makes huge donation to Children's foundation

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - On Friday, the Saint Paul Children's Foundation received the biggest single food donation ever. Crosspointe Community Church gathered over 2,100 pounds of food.

Three weeks ago, Crosspointe pitted the women against the men to see who could gather the most food. The women won by 116 pounds, so the men have to serve them dinner. But, the real winners are the 300 families the donation will feed over the Thanksgiving holiday.

Anna Hayes with the St. Paul Children's Foundation says, "We always gear up for this time of year because we do see a surge during November and December, during the holiday season people are needing extra assistance."

Since 1999, the St. Paul Children's Foundation has distributed tons of food and clothing to tens of thousands of East Texans.
