In an Act of Kindness, a Stranger Keeps an Iowan Man's Christmas Light Tradition Going Strong

For decades, Dale Marks has put up an elaborate Christmas light display that draws in people by the carload who come to marvel at his beautiful Christmas display. Every year the Marks' put donation boxes at the end of the driveway for visitors to donate money and food to the Food Bank of Iowa as they drive past. Last year they were able to raise over 28,000 meals in cash for the Food Bank and this year they hoped to do even better.
