Rockford area church takes on good neighbor day


A good neighbor might be someone who mows their lawn or waves hello. But members of a local church take the term a bit further.

The Our Saviors Lutheran Church in Rockford held a "Good Neighbor Sunday" event. The congregation works together for special charity projects to better the community and the world.

Members planned to pay 8,000 meals for hungry children, but those plans changed as the groups eagerness to help grew. Instead, it packed 16,000 meals.

In the future the group plans to pack backpacks with supplies for children in the area, clean up trash and make greeting cards for service members.
