JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

An informational meeting is set for those interested in helping with an event that will be a first in Jonesboro.

The Barnabas Group and Fellowship Jonesboro Church were chosen to sponsor a Tim Tebow Night to Shine event in 2018.

The Barnabas Group, a ministry group, has already started planning and needs volunteers.

Anyone interested in helping should attend the informational meeting Friday, Aug. 25, from 6 to 7 p.m. at Fellowship Jonesboro.

Susan Smith said the meeting will give full details on what this event looks like and what kind of volunteers are needed.
