HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

A large crowd joined together in Huntsville for music, food and giving Sunday.

The fifth annual Love Fest served as a fundraiser for the Got Your Back Pack drive that collects school supplies and clothes for needy children before their first day of school.

This year, the supplies will be distributed to kids in the Norwood and Calvary Heights communities. Organizers said the event helps promote the healing spirit of sharing and love.

"We're really focusing on love and bringing the people of Huntsville and Madison County together to experience giving to children in the community," said event coordinator Bryan Cordell.

Organizers will hand out the donated backpacks at their Love, Food, and Cuts event August 18.
