We are getting ready for our annual Thanksgiving Food Drive and can use your help in many different areas. Last year we helped 300 families and expect to help at least that many this year. Monetary donations are always welcome since we can purchase food at Feeding the Valley for $0.19 a pound. Items that we have not been able to purchase, but need, are canned tuna, jam, and soups.

We also need plastic bags (Kroger, Wal-Mart) doubled, and we need volunteers. On Friday, Nov. 17 we will be preparing the bags so we’ll need volunteers to man tables and fill bags.

On Saturday, Nov. 18 our clients will be picking up their food and we can use volunteers to help carry the groceries out to cars. If you can help please contact Judy Westbrook at jrw5@bellsouth.net, be sure to include Focus on the subject line or call her at 706-663-4505.

Thank you. Your support makes it possible for us to help the needy of Harris County.
