Livingston County families who are struggling to put food on the table will have a little something extra this holiday season, thanks to the efforts of Livingston County Democrats.
Party members contributed to Gleaners Community Food Bank the equivalent of 7,847 meals for those in need. The donations came through on-line monetary gifts as well as contributions of cash, checks, and non-perishable food brought to the Democrats’ holiday party on Dec. 1.
“Donating to Gleaners is an annual tradition for local Democrats who believe that no one should go hungry during the holidays,” noted party chair Judy Daugbenmier. “It is part of the Democrats’ tradition of community involvement that includes more than 25 years of participation in the Michigan Department of Transportation’s Adopt-a-Highway roadside clean-up program and participation in OLSHA’s annual Walk for Warmth.”
