The Head Start Centers of Webster and Claiborne parishes partnered with Divine Services to donate to the needy. Fourteen turkeys, donated along with foodstuffs to make a full meal, were distributed Friday afternoon to the five centers in the region.
The food boxes went to Mother Goose Land in Minden, Jack and Jill in Cullen/Springhill, ABC Head Start in Homer, Humpty Dumpty in Cotton Valley and 123 Head Start in Haynesville. Center managers selected families from each region.
