"They're overlooked. They're forgotten. We don't want to overlook anyone. We don't want to forget anyone in our community, and we want to be an agent of grace and of love to our community," Senior Pastor at Baker Street Community Church Milt Van Natta said.

The program last till February 28th. The pastor believes the program will extend into March because of low temperatures.
