WEST MONROE -- In Bawcomville, hundreds of families were treated to a special Christmas celebration.
Life Church West Monroe hosted their annual Christmas block party for the community at the Boys And Girls Club.
Mr. and Mrs. Claus gave out 250 wrapped toys to children and volunteers fried 1,200 fillets of fish. Hundreds of plates of food were handed out.
"200 to 300 kids always have told us, they wouldn't have christmas without this event," said Pastor Joel Dyke who said the church has done this event in many neighborhoods over the years. "So we just kind of settled here."
This event was of no cost to the community.
