JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) - Cathedral Baptist Church is once again partnering with an international organization to help disadvantaged children in war-torn and poverty stricken countries.

Volunteers have 1,200 boxes right now. Cathedral Baptist is looking for donations and volunteers to load trucks this weekend.
