Volunteers Pack and Deliver Food to Needy Senior Citizens
COLUMBIA - Needy senior citizens in Columbia are getting Thanksgiving food early. Among other items, volunteers packed canned goods, bread, stuffing mix, and a turkey Saturday. Organizer Almeta Crayton said compared to last year, more people are in need this year. In fact, those who helped with the "Everyone Eats" event last year, are recipients now.
Others who need holiday food are set to pick it up Monday and Tuesday. Volunteers are saving senior citizens the trouble of waiting in line for that by delivering the goods Saturday.
This is the 14th Anniversary for the event.
