LAUDERDALE, Miss. (WTOK)- A local ministry put on a special concert Sunday night to help two families in need.

Chris Evans Ministries sponsored a Hope for the Holiday’s concert at Mt. Olive Missionary Baptist Church in Lauderdale. Attendees were asked to bring canned goods and toys that will be donated to two families in the Meridian Housing Authority. The event featured gospel artist Lisa Knowles who also helped put it on.

"I am a recording artist. I feel like with the platform god has blessed me with to travel across the world that you should give something back. You should do something for the people who support you and who buy your music and listen to you on the radio,” says Knowles.

Knowles plans to help families in different cities each year.
