NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WTVF) — As we head into the season of giving, one local group decided to spread some holiday cheer early!

"We are going through this neighborhood, centennial park and Murfreesboro road," said organizer LaTonya Beechum. Their first stop was Decatur street.

This event was hosted by the local bike organization Darkside.

This group of volunteers handed out more than 100 items including blankets, toys, and clothing to the less fortunate and homeless.

LaTonya Beechum, also a medical assistant at Vanderbilt, personally knows how the pandemic has affected people's health and livelihood.

A pandemic that has taken away so much, from so many, she refused to let it take away Christmas from those in need of holiday cheer.

"We want to let them know they aren't forgotten or overlooked," said Beechum.

Afterall, spreading joy and kindness is what the Christmas spirit is all about.

"You never know one day it could be you," said volunteer Alon Giles, 12-years-old.
