FRC and DAV say “Thank You” to those who donated

FRC and DAV say “Thank You” to those who donatedOn behalf of Commander Glenn Williams and all members of the DAV Hull York Chapter 5, Family Resource Center Advisory Council, and Family Resource Center Director Nicola Smith, we would like to express our appreciation to those who helped make the 2010 Thanksgiving and Christmas food box distributions possible.
This truly is a community effort, and we greatly appreciate the support received from the following businesses and churches: B & K, Bloomington Christian Church, First Baptist Church Byrdstown, First United Methodist Church, Lovelady Christian Church, and Pickett County Care and Rehab. To the individuals who donated items and money, we are certainly grateful for your generosity. We especially want to thank the students and families of PCK-8 for donating over 3,000 food items, and PCHS for collecting toys for Christmas gifts.
We greatly appreciate the volunteers who helped prepare and deliver the food baskets, as well as a special thank you to Emily Sells and Becky Matheny for coordinating the project. Due to your efforts we were able to serve 86 families during Thanksgiving and 87 families during Christmas.
The Family Resource Center is a part of the Pickett County School System. Our efforts are directed at serving our students, their families, and our community. We truly appreciate the support received from within the community; because of you we are able to fulfill our duties to the greatest extent!
