MCCSA Distributes Food Donations

Multi-County Community Service Agency in Meridian distributed the food raised from WTOK's holiday food drive Tuesday.

They gave out the more than 300 bags of food donated by members of the community.

People from all walks of life came to receive food for Thanksgiving.

MCCSA was even able to distribute some extra bags to agencies in the surrounding counties. But even with all the generosity shown so far, officials say there is still need out there.

"We know Thanksgiving is only a day away; we do need additional services because we see people coming in pretty regular and needing help," said Mary Atterberry, executive assistant.

Yates Construction also donated two truck loads of food as part of its Brother's Keeper program. Yates conducted a food drive for about a month at its job sites, and several contractors contributed to the drive. An official with the company says they just wanted to help out the community with these donations.

You may donate non-perishable food items to the agency and it will distribute the items to people in need.
