The remainder of the money raised will go towards supporting families who are less fortunate on Christmas as well.

With the help f the city of Leesburg, over 60 families will receive thanksgiving baskets.

“We live in a day in time where it seems like so many people are just out for themselves and we want to show folks that there is still love in our community and that there are still people out here who care and want to give genuinely to someone,” said the Pastor of the Vine Church Jamie Baggett.
