PINEVILLE, Ky. (WYMT) - Thousands of people waited in line in Bell County for a Kentucky Christmas Blessing.

The Kentucky Christmas Blessing was put on by Praise Ministries International.
Hundreds of people from other states and nearly 20 local churches worked as volunteers.
They gave clothes, shoes, toys and food to thousands of people.
