The $20,000 fundraising goal by year’s end is soon to become realty. The funding for the Kids Weekend Food program means more children will bring home food from school each Friday afternoon. School officials determine the names of children in need of food over the weekend.

You can make a difference for hungry children in Hood County. Donations are sought to continue funding the Kids Weekend Food program. Organizers hope to reach a goal of $20,000 by year’s end.

This year, donations to the United Way Mobile Food Pantry program will be used for the Weekend Food For Kids program. Checks made to the Mobile Food Pantry can be mailed to P.O. Box 1611, Granbury Texas 76049. Call 817-579-5100 with questions.

Names of donors will be listed in the paper each week, or you may give anonymously. The fund drive will run through the end of the year.
