The community turned out for the United Christian Assistance Program’s 31st Hungerfest at First United Methodist Church Thursday. The fundraiser featured a soup meal and was followed by a dessert auction. UCAP Director Charlotte Jones said the auction alone brought in more than $7,000. She says the money will be used to operate the program in the coming months. In 2015, UCAP fed 2,031 families, provided clothes to 2,895 people and spent more than $70,000 on utilities for families in south Webster Parish. For more information, call Jones at the UCAP office on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m. at 318-377-6804.
