Thanks so much to Joyce Knight of Catholic Charities of the Texas Panhandlefor stopping by High Plains Morning today to share about two wonderful programs they have coming up.
First, she told us about their Holiday Gift Basketinitiative, providing a special meal package for the many poverty-stricken senior citizens and disabled adults who aren't able to have a traditional holiday dinner this year. Your generosity can provide a holiday basket which includes turkey or ham, stuffing, potatoes, gravy, yams, vegetables, bread and dessert. Enough food for at least ten meals!
