Members of the Optimist Club of St. Clair Shores, and other volunteers, assembled and delivered food boxes Sunday to 12 local families.
The boxes were packed by 16 volunteers in the South Lake warehouse and include food for the families for a week. Items included milk, eggs, bread, spaghetti sauce and noodles, cereal, treats, pop, desserts, peanut butter and jelly, canned vegetables, juice, along with items to make a Thanksgiving turkey dinner with all the trimmings.
“I am proud of this organization and the great things we continue to do for those less fortunate than ourselves," club President Debbie DePape said in a release.
Families receiving the boxes of food were referred by South Lake Schools, Lakeview Public Schools and Lake Shore Schools.
