She is the sole provider for her family.

Harry Tucker, 60, a Jesus House resident and volunteer, said he knows what it's like to need help.

“I was homeless living out there without meals. I heard about this place and I decided to stop by for a meal one day. It's a good Christian atmosphere with good people who help you get back on your feet,” Tucker said.

Tucker, who said he grew up in and out of foster care, now volunteers as the warehouse supervisor and attends Bible studies at a nearby church.

The bags were decorated with drawings, stickers and Scripture passages and were created by children from Memorial Road Church of Christ in Edmond. Walmart provided candy and plastic Easter eggs for the food bags.

“I hope it's the little things they'll remember,” Smith said.
