The monthly free produce distribution (food provided by East Texas Food Bank) was held just before Thanksgiving on the third Monday, Nov 21.
Volunteers from Piney Woods Lions Club, Leo Club, and Standing with Crockett handed out food from rows of food at the Civic Center. ETFB provided about 24 pallets of food this month that included sweet potatoes, Yukon potatoes, onions, carrots, watermelons, a variety of frozen meats and pastries, and 18-count containers of large eggs. Thanks to everyone that came out to take food home for themselves and for other families.
The Leos also visited the assisted living home Enchanted Pines, on the day before Thanksgiving. The Leos delivered flowers to each resident. Many of the residents expressed their gratitude for the youth stopping by to see them.
