ACH Lets the Little Ones Laugh
During the holiday season, we all become kids at heart. However, for some of the children in our community, they don't find a lot to be happy about â€“ especially if their stomachs are empty or if they are cold.

As an outreach project to the community, the ACH volunteers took the matter into their hands, and donated hundreds of items for toddlers and children. Diapers, baby food, healthy snacks, soups, baby bottles, cereal, baby wipes, sweat shirts, lotions, and socks were donated. A very large amount of items that are necessary for the care of little ones will be given away.
These items were delivered to the Alliance Food Pantry, located at the First Christian Church, for distribution among families in our community who can use a helping hand.
â€œIn recent years, our volunteers have opened their hearts and their wallets to help those in our community who are in need through a variety of activities. This year, the needs are greater with the high unemployment in our area,â€ shared Marcy Todd, Volunteer Coordinator.
â€œOur volunteers range in age from 16 years to 90 years. Helping others is just part of what these wonderful individuals do on a daily basis. Where there is a need, it's a sure bet our volunteers will there, ready to help anyway they can.â€
