Holiday giving gets started

The Southern Standard is gearing up for our 32nd year of Share A Christmas Dinner, a program that helps ensure everyone in the community has a holiday feast.Share A Christmas Dinner started in 1981. It’s a community-based program that provides a way for those who are looking forward to a big meal this holiday season to share that joyful anticipation with those less fortunate.Last year, donations purchased food boxes that were distributed to 625 families. Each food box – packed with a nutritious and complete Christmas meal – costs around $30.
