Volunteers with the BPD and the Kern County Sheriff's Office spent their evening packing holiday food baskets for families in need.

Dozens of volunteers filled 450 boxes with turkeys, canned food, and dessert for families in need.

It's part of the 31st Annual Family to Family Christmas Food Basket program.

 Volunteers with local law enforcement agencies get the boxes ready to be delivered the next day.

For the Maddens, preparing the baskets has become a tradition.

"Growing up it was always, 'I want, I want, I want,' so I wanted her to see the importance of some families that were not as fortunate as we were at the time and i think she - the more we came out she started to enjoy this," said Clayton Madden who brought his 17-year-old, Taylor, to volunteer.

The food baskets will be delivered at 7:30 a.m. on Thursday.
