ARLINGTON, GA (WALB) - Four hundred families in Early and Calhoun counties received a hand up today thanks to a team of organizations.
Georgia Pacific, along with the Feed the Children, donated 400 boxes of food and personal care items. Family Connections Partnership pre-selected the recipients and distributed the boxes this morning in Arlington.
Both organizers and those receiving the donations agree times are tough, and a little help goes a long way.
"Family Connection is a resource agency and we try to make sure people know where to go get the things that they need. It has grown a lot in the past few years, particularly families with children and the elderly," said Gwen Houston, Early County Family Connections.
Rebecca Miller, a senior citizen who lives in Arlington, says the food is a welcome sight. She knows all too well how difficult it can be to put food on the table.
She said, "There's been times when I didn't have anything to eat. And like right now, I'm very, very low on food. So this is going to help me very much,"
This is the fourth year Feed the Children and Family Connections have held the giveaway.
If you live in Calhoun or Early Counties and need more information on how you can receive help, you can contact the Calhoun County Family Connections office 229-357-1551, and the Early County Family Connection FACES at 229-723-5122.
