David Webb, the former Dallas Voice reporter who now lives on Cedar Creek Lake and operates The Rare Reporter blog, reported today that the food bank in the DeCuire Community Center at Celebration on the Lake Church is almost empty.
Food bank officials told David that there was only one bag of food left, and that demand is higher because area children are out of school for the summer, and because the economic situation has left a lot of people without jobs or money.
Friends nightclub in Gun Barrel City will be collecting donations of food and cleaning supplies for the food pantry through Aug. 2 (the bar’s general manager has already gone to the store to buy food to donate), so donations can be dropped off at Friends. You can also drop off donations at the church on Sunday mornings.
