COLORADO SPRINGS — The Academy Christian Church held a 'Drive-by Donation Drive' Saturday for food and other items.

The church partnered with Mercy's Gate and Crossfire Ministries to collect food, toilet paper, cleaning supplies, and other essential items for those in need.

Organizers said they want to make sure all families have the items they need.

"At the very core of everything, people need to eat and they need to feed their children, and they need to feel like that is one thing that they don't have to worry about. And so we're trying to help with that," Pastor John Plastow said.

More than 30 cars showed up at the event to donate.
