GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Who says the Christmas holiday is the only season of giving? The Triad is full of generous people who volunteer their time and resources to make sure others have enough food to feed their families, and the Black Women Empowered Safe Haven is one of those groups.
Jacqueline King who is with the non-profit and Ashlee Wiley who is with the Servant Center of Greensboro stopped by the Good Morning Show to talk about a Winter food drive benefiting the center.
Wiley said the Servant Center can feed up to 600 families a month, and the food drive donations (King said the donations are tax deductible) will help feed hundreds more. The Servant Center's Grocery Assistance Program delivers food bags to low-income elderly and families in the Triad with referral from the Food Stamp Administration.
