Neighbors Helping Neighbors
Food drives all over have been helping out those in need this holiday season. One community in North Central Florida says this year's drive is bigger than its ever been.
The Trenton food pantry opened fourteen years ago serving the less fortunate of Gilchrist County. The holiday food distribution has always been their biggest project, but this year's marks the biggest of them all. Rick Weder is the director of the food pantry. He expects to feed 1300 families this year. Semis were packed full of goods and today's event had over 50 volunteers lending a hand. It was a mission that seemed impossible, made possible, Weder says, by the people.
Volunteers started preparing for the holiday right after Thanksgiving. Those who qualified picked up their bags full of treats, and for those unable to drive, volunteers brought the goods to their front door.
Weder expects to give away all ten thousand pounds of food, but whatever doesn't go today will be gone tomorrow when they'll have their second shift of distributions.
