The youth group directors are Carolyn Day and Paulette Sandefer.

They provided 170 holiday food baskets to veterans in need.

“We appreciate the assistance from the VFW for this event," said Donna Reynolds, services officer. "Care and Share provides a much needed holiday meal for a veteran and his or her family, and it would not be possible without such generosity.”
