Hunt County Shared Ministries

Pud Kearns with Housewarmers of Greenville says Hunt County Shared Ministries, or FISH, needs volunteers to help assemble Thanksgiving food baskets for about 700 families.  The baskets will be assembled at the Greenville Electric Utilities Services (GEUS) building on Wesley Street Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday nights of this week.

Pud Kearns with Housewarmers of Greenville describes a new twist on the "ice-bucket challenge."  Instead of emptying ice buckets, the citizens of Hunt County are challenged to fill Home Depot work buckets with donations to Hunt County Shared Ministries, or FISH, which provides food for people in need, and whose shelves have become nearly empty in recent weeks.
