Executive Director of the Downtown Jonesboro Association Lindsey Ford said this is an event they do every year.

"The reason that we chose to do this is because the businesses down here, they will see direct benefits to the children from downtown and local families downtown so it's just really a reason for us to give back to these people," Ford said.

Those participating were Gearhead Outfitters, Eleanor's Pizzeria, Skinny J's, the Brickhouse, Recovery Room, and Parsonage 322.
