Boxes of food, cleaning supplies donated by East Texas churches to end-of-life care facility

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

It's a full house at The Joseph's House in Lufkin, a nonprofit organization that homes dozens of terminally ill patients. Tuesday marked the first day of the facilities expansion process, and the community has noticed.

A handful of area churches, including: First Baptist in Lufkin, Fairview Baptist, Chestnut Drive Baptist, Highway Baptist in Huntington, First Baptist in Diboll, and First Shiloh in Diboll, have donated bags of food, spices, and cleaning supplies to the facility.

"We've just been overwhelmed at the generosity from these churches. And once again we're so appreciative because we could not do it without the help of the community," said Denise Bennefield, the director of The Joseph's House.

The Joseph's House still needs a lot of stuff and they have a registry at Wal-mart. That registry can be accessed here: http://www.walmart.com/giftregistry/gr_detail.do?registryId=86170564111.

The Joseph House still needs a lot of smaller items; like serving spoons, dish cloths and bowls, but are thankful for anything they are given.
