More than 1,000 people will enjoy a happier holiday season after 45 Pulaski County volunteers distributed food bags, toys and gifts to those in need.
More than 300 households received assistance and more than 700 children were served in this total. Volunteers from Pulaski County Human Services, the Methodist Church in Winamac, Kiwanis members, Winamac High School Sunshine Girls, boys basketball team and Student Council, Winamac Boy Scouts, Head Start, Junior Leaders, and community members spent the day Saturday helping parents shop for toys and wrapped them for distribution.
A donation drive was held to gather toys for the children this year for the Toy Store at the Pulaski County Human Services building in Winamac. Jacki Frain from PCHS thanks all who helped and proved that Pulaski County is working to help bring the community together.
