For the 10th straight year, the Tent City Project in Huntsville gathered donations to help the homeless. This year they'll be handing them out on December 22nd. 

In a part of Huntsville that is rarely seen, about a dozen or so tents are set up in a makeshift village where people down on their luck call home.

Some people said they live there because it's a struggle to just get by. The Tent City Project will be helping those people this holiday season by giving them camping supplies, clothes, food, first aid supplies and other necessities.

"They're really helpful. If it wasn't for them, I don't know what we would do," said Denise Perry.
