Newton County Basket Brigade Supplies Food to Thousands



Thanks to generous donations from the community - thousands of Newton County residents will not be hungry this  holiday season.

  The Newton County food basket brigade held its  distribution day in Neosho for families. 
     The distribution was done in  grocery store fashion - recipients gathered  items  into  carts depending how many members are in their  family.  
     Brigade organizers say this time of year its  important to remind people  just how valuable a donation can be.

Lynn Otey with the brigade says, "We didn't want anyone to be without a Christmas dinner and another week of grocery supplies during this time of year."

Any leftover food from Saturday's distribution will go to the Newton County help center. Otey says more than a thousand families registered and the food is helping nearly three thousand young and old.
