Family to Family Food Drive : Day 7 of 13 Days of Giving

Family to Family Food Drive : Day 7 of 13 Days of Giving

 

One of the most well known holiday songs states, "It's the most wonderful time of the year," and it is for some families.  But for others this holiday season has been reduced to one simple choice - food and shelter, or gifts for their families. 

This year the First Sergeants at Robins Air Force Base have identified seventy-five military families, including approximately two-hundred children, who don't have enough resources to provide food and gifts for their families. 

You can help by donating canned goods (see list below) or make a monetary donation which will help purchase turkeys, hams, and other perishable items.
