Continued support appreciated
First, I would personally like to thank everyone for all your effort in making Thanksgiving and Christmas such a special time for over 39 years in Porterville. You are awesome.
From food distribution 50 weeks per year, Thanksgiving food baskets, the wonderful dinner and Christmas baskets in this 39th year, Children’s Christmas party in Plainview and Porterville. Thanks to all those who allowed containers to be placed in your business areas. What a wonderful community you are.
No one that we know of went hungry and no child was without. Over 400 jackets were given out. Many blankets and sleeping bags given to the homeless, furniture for those we put in housing, and baby beds and related items for many days.
Your continued support is so appreciated. Through your donations, we have been able to maintain three drug diversion homes, two for men and one for women. We can never thank all of you enough for helping and contributing to the less fortune of our city.
