BENTONVILLE--In Bentonville, members of the Kiwanas Club spent the morning helping others in the community. The club handed out 700 Christmas boxes containing bread, canned goods,
potatoes and chicken to families at the Bentonville National Armory.

Tyson Foods donated the chicken and Benton County jail inmates helped separate the food and put it in the boxes. The club has been distributing the boxes for the past 50 years. Most people
came by the armory to pick up the boxes, but club members also delivered boxes to the Salvation Army, Northwest Arkansas Children's Shelter, Havenwood and Youth Bridge in Centerton.
