Louisville residents help make the holidays brighter for those in need

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville residents helped make the holidays a little brighter for the homeless community.

Christmas Eve morning, a caravan of volunteers visited overpasses in downtown Louisville to box up and distribute care packages to the city's homeless residents.

The packages included combs, socks, tooth brushes, gloves and clothing.

"It's just been enormous. I am blown away at the turnout, how it has turned out. I am just blown away. I am speechless," said Rhonda Winter, coordinator. 

"I just thank you because these items help me warm up to afford to where I feel like I am apart of something," said Michael Bicklim, who received a care package.

Santa even made an appearance to help.

Organizers hoped to make 50 care packages, but ended up making double the amount.
