I helped pack the Thanksgiving holiday boxes for distribution and saw first hand how much food is needed. The shelves were emptied. I then returned after the holiday to help restock with food aquired by the local High School's food drive. What a differnce these donations make!! The wonderful group of regular volunteers certainly work hard to keep everything in order and make sure they serve all that need it every week!!
