Brookshire’s Spirit of Christmas Food Drive Topic at Canton Rotary
The annual Brookshire’s Spirit of Christmas food drive is in full swing! Just purchase a “grab bag” of non-perishables for $5.00, and it goes into the big wrapped box at the front of the store, and then taken to the distribution center right here in Canton, at Winning Strategies, where Lions Club and Rotarians will be able to pick up bags and deliver them to community members in need. Andy Reese is Operations Director at Winning Strategies and addressed the Canton Rotary Club last Thursday over lunch at the Van Zandt Country Club.
Reese expects 230 boxes of food from the Canton Brookshire’s Grocery Store this season, by the time the drive ends on December 19. Reese said it was “eye opening” when he first started delivering food to homes in 2002; “It really makes a difference.”
He reminded Club members not to send people to Winning Strategies for their food, rather, club members can pick up and deliver to charity recipients personally.
