Carthage Crisis Center delivers meals to those in need

CARTHAGE, Mo. – This holiday season, many families are struggling to put food on the table.

Places like the Carthage Crisis Center are helping those in need.

Volunteers prepped a total of 350 holiday meals which included ham, turkey and some classic side dishes.

Because of covid concerns, all meals were delivered.

Organizers say this giving is only possible with help from the loving community.

“Wednesday we had a family group come in and they had little kids, 5 and 6-years-old, cutting butter for potatoes so that people could have Christmas and it’s truly remarkable,” said Karrie Oxford with the Carthage Crisis Center.

This Thanksgiving, the Carthage Crisis Center delivered a total of 380 meals. That’s the most they’ve ever done.
