Volunteers help with Corbin Lions Club food basket distribution prep

CORBIN — Times-Tribune Staff Report

The Corbin Lions Club is gearing up once again for its annual Christmas Eve food basket distribution.

On Saturday, volunteers gathered at the Corbin Vocational Center to fill each box with a variety of foods including canned vegetables, fresh fruit, flour, margarine, milk, Pepsi, bread, canned ham, sliced turkey with gravy and candy.

The club reported it has fallen short of its fundraising goal of $15,000. So far, about $7,760 has been raised. The need for baskets is greater than ever, and club members ask that donations be sent to P.O Box 365, Corbin, KY 40702. All money will be used for the Christmas basket program, which is in its 65th year.

During the first year of food basket distribution, the club provided five baskets.
