Lake Charles is coming out with the support from all directions and organizations from all over. This Saturday, Disaster Resource Groups will have a Holiday Helpings Family Meal Giveaway. This benefits families who have been directly impacted and are recovering from Hurricanes Laura and Delta.

The benefit will be from 10:00-2:00pm at the Lake Charles Civic Center. This will be held in the north side of the Civic Center using Bord Du Lac Drive. When I tell you this benefit is going to be huge, they will be feeding nearly 20,000 in the Lake Charles community.

There will be 2,000 Holiday meal pans that will feature all the fixings, including a whole rotisserie turkey, sweet potato casserole, seasoned green beans and a whole pecan pie. Everything is prepared to eat or heat it up, and it should cover your immediate family for the Christmas celebration - safely, of course.

In order to follow COVID guidelines, there will be no contact and this will be done with a drive-thru distribution, vehicle pick-up only. Also, this is on a first-come, first-served basis. I know how important it is for families to at least be able to have food for the holidays. I want to commend everyone involved for helping out as many people as they can for the occasion.
