Food, toy campaign begins
Trinity Standard -
TRINITY – The annual holiday food basket campaign sponsored by the Trinity Ministerial Alliance is officially underway. Now in its 26th year, the program provides food and holiday toys to needy families throughout the Trinity area. Funded completely by donations from the public, the program has grown from approximately 55 baskets given out in its first year to over 460 in 2011. Organizers are expecting even more applications this year and are asking for public support to meet the demand. Those wishing to donate may send checks to The Christmas Basket Committee, P.O. Box 282 or P.O. Box 112, Trinity, Texas 75862. A hamburger fundraiser for the toy campaign held at Westwood Shores on Nov. 16 raised over $3,000, which will be used for the purchase of toys for children. The event was organized by Mr. and Mrs. Billy Sheffield, who were assisted by a number of volunteers.
