112116powerpacks

During the upcoming holiday season when we are all experiencing an abundance of food; we ask that the public becomes aware of the great needs that exist in our community.

“WHTM families could adopt a family to support over the holidays,” says Distribution Manager Christie Livengood.

Power Packs asks for support for families that are under-served. A gift of $50 to Power Packs will feed a family every weekend from Thanksgiving through Christmas. Other gift ideas can be found on their website PowerPacksProject.org
