LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - Deserving families will have a brighter Thanksgiving, all due to donations from Brookshire Brothers.
The local grocery store giant donated 120 hams to "The Christian Outreach" of Diboll, "The Salvation Army," and the "Family Crisis Center."
It's all in an effort to ensure every Deep East Texan will have a little piece of joy come this holiday season.
"We have clients that are in our safe house as well as clients that have been in our safe house before, but are out on their own that might not have the Thanksgiving meal that we would think of a typical meal, so this will go such a long way with them," Greta Rich, of the Family Crisis Center.
Recipients say today's donation was truly a surprise blessing that they plan to pay forward.
