Desperately Seeking Donations

      The group "People Attempting To Help" says it literally doesn't have the goods to feed the needy. Donated food is flying off the shelves faster than they're getting donations. P.A.T.H. provides food for about 75 to 100 families per day, but people are getting cut short because of the low food supply.

     "We had a family of 7 that came in and normally we would give them enough food for one week for all 7 members of the family, and because we wanted to make the food last a little longer we only gave them enough food for one day," says Christina Fulsom, P.A.T.H. Executive Director.

      P.A.T.H. is asking the public to donate non-perishable goods as soon as possible. You can drop them off at the P.A.T.H. Food Pantry, at 402 W. Front Street in Tyler, or call the P.A.T.H. office for more information at: (903) 597-4044.
