Thanksgiving Food Box Assembly

Thank you to L3 and its employees! Donations have totaled over $10,000 and over 750 turkeys. Because of your generosity to our ministry, hundreds of families who are most in need in Hunt County had a wonderful Thanksgiving and will have a Merry Christmas! Your corporate partnership is just that - a true partnership.

Brookshire's Spirit of Christmas

We couldn't have made this challenging year for Thanksgiving and Christmas food without the help of Brookshires and their Spirit of Christmas Food Drive. Not only did they (and you, with your generosity at the cash register) help us get the food we needed at the best price, they helped us in more ways than we can count. Special love to Joey Aiken for all his hard work! THE SPIRIT OF CHRISTMAS FOOD DRIVE CONTINUES THROUGH THE END OF THE YEAR AT BROOKSHIRES.
