The spirit of giving was apparent in the communities of Holbrook and Joseph City judging by the outcome of the Holbrook Police Department’s food drive, which began Nov. 8. Businesses such as Alco, Dollar General, The Tribune-News, Pat’s House of Originals, Z92 Radio and the Joseph City Volunteer Fire Department provided boxes for residents to put food in that was then donated to the drive. The food, as well as $108 donated by residents, was delivered to Catholic Charities Dec. 20 in time to provide food to families in need at Christmas. Helping to unload the food were (left to right) HPD Administrative Assistant Emily Wheeler, Terrence Clendor, Jay Laramore, Catholic Charities Director Sheila Ashenfelder, Kurt Cross, Police Chief Mark Jackson, Richard D. Brown, Michael Kueneman, Gene Miller and Kent Lewis.
