Approximately 60-70 volunteers gathered at the Food Pantry of Carroll County Saturday morning to add perishable food items to the Christmas food baskets and deliver them to Carroll County families. This year, 211 families received food through the program, ranging from one person up to 14 people per family.
Leigh Ann Roberts said it was another successful year for the Community Christmas Project. So many children and families got so many neat gifts thanks to the work of many volunteers. It truly is a blessing, she said. Thanks to the anonymous donors that made a child’s life better as every angel on the Wal-Mart Angel Tree was sponsored.
Each family that participated in any of the Community Christmas programs had to complete 12 hours of educational programs through the Carroll County adult education program.
