North Hills charity wants everybody to enjoy Thanksgiving
Staff and volunteers for North Hills Community Outreach are helping needy residents with the struggle to put a meal on the table for Thanksgiving Day.
The charity, which assisted nearly 3,500 families facing hardships and poverty last year, has been collecting food and money to purchase grocery items that are packed and distributed.
NHCO also will be helping to make the holidays brighter for needy children by collecting new toys, games, sporting equipment, apparel and gift cards for children ages birth through 18, through Dec. 12.
Gifts cards and gifts appropriate for teens are especially needed.
