During the holidays, all of humanity seems to be more caring and willing to help each other. Generally, food drives are held for Thanksgiving and toy drives take place around Christmas; but some families who are incapable of gifting also have trouble with the basic necessities, such as paying utilities and having enough food to eat.

For the latter, help is available.

Saturday, December 21, the Bridge Builder Friendship Foundation, Alpha Tau Chapter of the Omega Psi Phi fraternity, and United Parcel Service's Neighbor 2 Neighbor foundation will host a food giveaway at The Venue (3100 15th Street; Tuscaloosa, AL).  The event will begin at 10 a.m. and will last until all of the food has been given away.  Their goal is to feed 150 families.

If changing temperatures and high utility costs have caused you to choose between warmth and satisfying your hunger, or you decided to forego buying gifts in favor of having your family together for a meal, you may be able to do both, thanks to these organizations!
