Christmas event at Municipal helps thousands in need

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -

On Saturday, thousands in need were helped by The Bridge Ministry.

The ministry group hosted "The Bridge to Christmas" for those in need at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium.

The event featured musical performances by Ricky Skaggs, Sharon White, Jason Crabb and many more.

However the main event of the afternoon was a gift distribution of toys, shoes, blankets, food and other necessities.

"It's good to know that people out there that still care about genuinely helping others, other in need," Ronnie Lyons told Nashville's News 2.

Lyons and his girlfriend are doing all they can to make ends meet and provide for their three children.

"One [child] is a newborn," Lyons said. "He's like 2 months old so it's pretty tough out here. Like I said, especially with one income, but you know we're making it, especially with people like this helping us along the way."

Many people and local businesses contributed to making the event a success by donating all the items distributed to the families.

"We're rolling up our sleeves and we are helping people in a tangible way to make sure that lots of people have a wonderful Christmas," said Candy Christmas, founder of The Bridge Ministry.

The Bridge Ministry feeds hundreds of homeless and less fortunate every Tuesday night under the Jefferson Street Bridge in Downtown Nashville.
