Hatch’s Super Foods and Perkins County Health Services coordinated an effort to provide Christmas dinner for area families in need. Hatch’s donated a gallon of milk to each meal, and PCHS donated a ham to each meal. Donations from the public exceeded previous years and totaled over $2400. The 23 meals cost $505.54 and a $25 gift card was added to each box with a cost of $575.00. This left a credit of over $1400 that was donated to the Perkins County food pantry.
