Charities Still Need Donations After Holidays

After we ring in the new year, the holiday season will be wrapping up.

While local food pantries got a lot of help during that time, they still need donations the rest of the year.

That's why officials at those places want to remind you that there are a lot of needy families out there. They said the number of people they're helping goes up every year, and they don't go down after the holidays.

Even donating a few items makes a huge difference to someone who wouldn't have a meal otherwise.

"We still need more food. If someone would like to know what they can do to continue to help us, get a youth group together, get a church group together, and do a food drive. We could always, always use food. We really like to put the emphasis on healthier foods, like sugar free foods, low sodium foods," said Cindy Hammer, regional director of Catholic Charities for the Weston region. 

If you don't want to donate food, you can always give some of your time. Volunteers are always welcomed to help distribute food.
