Trinity Health Foundation helps needy families

The local community opened their hearts to a drive by the Trinity Health Foundation to put turkeys and other groceries on the tables of needy families this holiday season.

The drive surpassed its goal and then some.

“This year, Trinity Health Foundation received $11,470.09, or about $1,000 beyond our goal. This shows that the people in this area care about others and want to give back to make sure everyone is blessed during the holiday season,” said Al Evon, director of the foundation.

The foundation started its eight annual Turkey Drive on Nov. 1 in partnership with KHRT’s Horn of Plenty campaign. The goal was to raise $10,500 or enough to purchase turkeys and food/gift boxes for 300 to 400 families in the region.

Evon said the campaign ended Dec. 5.

Packing night for the Horn of Plenty will take place on Wednesday, Dec. 11, beginning at 5:30 p.m. at the former Club Outlet Store on North Hill at 3516 N. Broadway. Volunteers are needed and anyone who would like to lend a hand will be most welcome. Entry will be on the south side of the building through the sliding glass doors.

Trinity Health Foundation and other groups will be making deliveries to families just before Christmas, according to Evon.

A big thank you goes to the Trinity Health Foundation and others who are making this Christmas season brighter for those in need.
