Thirty local families received a large box of the food items, along with a turkey, five pounds of fruit and a bag of potatoes, which were purchased with donated funds.

Even after packing the boxes to the brim, there was still food available that was delivered to the St. Mary of Vernon Food Pantry.

Special thanks to Jerry Starzyk, a true friend of Hawthorn and a local veteran, who donated 30 pies to sweeten the holidays.
