GREEN BAY (WLUK) -- Volunteers spent the day making a difference for the homeless in the community.

The Transformation House hosted the 5th annual Homeless and Community BBQ Saturday.

It was held at Saint John's Park in Green Bay.

The event provides free food, access to community resources, games entertainment and relaxation.

Visitors enjoyed pulled pork sandwiches, hamburgers, hot dogs, fried chicken, spaghetti and lots of desserts.

Free school supplies were also given away to the first 75 children.

Organizers say it's about helping those in need.

"It's the awareness and it's showing the homeless and the ones that are less fortunate that we care about them," said Manuelus Reacco, Transformation House director.

The Transformation House is a 30-bed facility that provides residents a place to sleep, life skill classes, counseling, job search assistance and financial guidance.
