Christmas lights for a cause

Posted: Updated:

One Colorado Springs man is sharing his Christmas light display for a great cause, but he needs your help to make a difference! 

Mark Ingles house near the corners of Peterson and Barnes is decked out with decorations and it's all to benefit Care and Share Food Bank. 

Mark started his Christmas display years ago! So many people came out to see the display he decided to take advantage of the opportunity to help our neighbors in need. For the past 4 years hes partnered with Care and Share Food Bank collecting cans and dry goods every year! 

Last year he collected 650 pounds of food. This year he's shooting for a half ton of food! 

"It's an opportunity to give back to the community, more than just the beauty of seeing the display and adding that to people's season of Christmas," explained Mark Ingles. "It's a tangible way of being able to have people drop off food. They're giving to an incredibly wonderful cause."

You can come by anytime between 5 p.m. and 10 p.m. to check out the amazing lights display and drop off a donation at the bin. If you can't stop by during those hours, not to worry, the bin will be here 24/7. 

The address is 4910 Nugent Dr. Colorado Springs, CO. It's near the intersection of Barnes and Peterson. The display will continue every night through Jan. 1, 2018.
