IMG_0221This week while at the High Plains Community Center, I stopped in on the Community Services Department and checked out the Food Bank. Sadly, many of the cupboards were almost bare.

During the holidays everyone chips in and donates items for the food baskets for the less fortunate. But, after my visit, I knew that anytime is the time to donate to the Food Bank.
