MOORESVILLE, NC (WBTV) - Dozens of volunteers got their hands dirty for a good cause.
The event happened at Williamson's Chapel United Methodist Church in Mooresville.
They made 125,000 life-saving meals to help starving children overseas.
Volunteers brought their whole families to help.
"They're not just coming in and writing a check and getting some information on hungry children, they come in they get to use their hands, and join in. It's great for all ages," said Todd Borar, a volunteer.
The meals will be sent to a warehouse on the coast.
From there, organizers will decide which countries to send them to.
