Operation Holiday says this year's food drive is in trouble. They need to double both the amount of food they have in their warehouse and their food voucher fund. More than 2,000 families are expected to show up on Friday for the organization's yearly food distribution. Those who come Saturday may not get anything at all.
Eurest Catering manager Carrie Robinson says local businesses need to chip in. Her company has promised to match food donations from Raytheon employees, pound for pound. Robinson encourages other business to do the same, so no family has to leave Operation Holiday wondering where their next meal will come from.
You can drop off donations at Eurest Dining at the Beech Activity Center at Webb and Central or at Operation Holiday's warehouse near Kellogg and Armor in the old Gordman's building.
