Approximately 2,000 cans of food was brought to school by the children in grades one to five. The drive was conducted by Kirstan Davis. The donated food filled the back seat and bed of a pick up truck for four trips! The food supplemented our Thanksgiving deliveries and has continued to keep our pantry stocked.
In November Sarrell Dental Clinic conducted a food drive for Hand Up. The clinic, located at 2841 Neal Metcalf Rd., serves the at-need. Employees donated canned food which was donated to Hand Up on Nov 23 to supplement the Thanksgiving food boxes which were delivered along with full holiday meals.

Brock Moore a HUE member and local business owner of BROCK MOORE INDUSTRIES hosted a Food and Toy drive for HUE Christmas 2016.
