Hunger Fighters get help with holiday distributions

Some 128 Davie families had more this Thanksgiving, thanks to the Davie High Hunger Fighters.

Superintendent Jeff Wallace and members of the Board of Education delivered boxes to the homes. Davie High Hunger Fighters (DHHF) volunteers have been collecting food and supplies to assemble the boxes.

Thanks to the leadership of Jimmie Welch, teacher at Davie High, and Lori Smith, Board of Education member, each family received a box and a $20 Food Lion gift card to purchase a turkey or ham.

“Davie High Hunger Fighters has quickly become an integral part of our community, helping so many families in need,” said Wallace. “Our staff and board members are always eager to get involved and help ease the burden for families in Davie County. It is an honor for us.”
