For families in Lehigh Acres who are unable to provide food for their family's Thanksgiving dinner, Lehigh Community Services, under the direction of its executive director, Rae Nicely, began taking applications on Monday, Oct. 28.
Signups end Friday, Nov. 8 and are taken from 1 to 3 p.m. only.
Nicely said those who apply for food must qualify under current guidelines set up by the agency.
In addition, Nicely said the agency's Christmas toy drive signup by families begins Monday Nov. 18 and ends Friday, Dec. 6, again from 1 to 3 p.m. only at the office at 201 Plaza Drive.
Again, families must qualify under current LCS guidelines, Nicely said.
The food is handed out just before Thanksgiving and the toys are given out just before Christmas and donations of toys come from clubs and organizations, merchants and private citizens.
If you want to give, contact Nicely at Lehigh Community Services.
