MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) -

Friday, many Mid-Southerners will start celebrating the Fourth of July, and there will probably be plenty of food to go around.

But, some residents are struggling to eat.

One of the unions for MLGW employees decided to help Mid-Southerners in need.

The IBEW Local 1288 Union employees gave out boxes filled with foods to Mid-Southerners aged 65 and older Thursday.

The boxes will feed more than 100 people and should last a week or two.

Organizers added that they give out food to older residents before each major holiday.
