CLEVELAND-- Hundreds of families and community groups need food, both at the holiday and all year round.
At the hunger center at St. Augustine Roman Catholic Church, they have food.
Donations have been good the past few months. But when you have food to give, you need someone, in fact a lot of someones, to help get it to the folks who need it on Christmas Day.
“I'm kind of hoping that people who are willing to deliver food will come about 9:30 to the two places we have: one at Pilgrim Church, which is just a half a block away where we'll be doing most of them, and we also have some here at St. Augustine for residential areas," hunger center director Sister Corita Ambro told Fox 8 News.
Volunteers are at the heart of helping the hunger center feed so many people throughout Northeast Ohio.
There are many people who volunteer a few hours a week while others donate their time whenever they can.
The simplest tasks can go a long way in helping to feed a hungry person. “Anybody with an afternoon free can come down and serve a meal and right now people can come and help us carve turkeys. We’re still carving turkeys for Christmas Day, so we have to carve about 15 hundred turkeys and we're still doing it," Sister Corita said.
The church needs volunteers especially on Christmas Day to help deliver thousands of meals to families and individuals in need.
If you would like to help you can call St. Augustine at 216-781-5530 to register and to find out more.
