LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Early this morning,volunteers from the Christian Information and Service Center and some KTREstaff members were out at the George H. Henderson Expo Center to load updonated canned goods from last night's KTRE Night at the Texas State Forest Festival.

CISC officials saidthat it is donations like the ones at the festival that really help.

"We're fixing to putthem on the shelves as soon as we get there," said Kathy Loftin, a CISCvolunteer. "Like I said, we are out of canned goods. We can't get them fromfood banks right now. They're struggling. Everybody is struggling."
