“We have estimated 1200 but we are making preparations for 1500 because there is also a need people express during the distribution”, says Rev. Bonita Grubbs of Christian Community Action. 

“We are trying to get as many of these food items in a bag and ready to ship out to get to the seniors in the area and those picking them up a couple day before Thanksgiving”, said Tom DeVitto of BlumShapiro.
