Thanks to the giving hearts and hands of the Circleville community, Ohio Christian University was able to donate more than 1,000 pounds of collected food to Pickaway County Community Action – Emergency Clearinghouse.
Four grocery carts filled to overflowing with canned and dry goods will provide hundreds of local families with much needed food this Christmas season.
Across the country, one out of five children live in households without consistent access to adequate food. Twenty-two percent of kids under the ages of 18 live in poverty in America. Currently, there are more than 45 million people in the United States who are hungry.
By collecting food each year at Festival of Carols, Ohio Christian puts a small dent in those statistics.
Thanks to all those who donated food and attended our 10th annual Festival of Carols this weekend.
