The Center of Hope and Kent Social Services, programs through Family & Community Services, Inc., recently held their Thanksgiving Giveaway with more than 900 boxes of Thanksgiving food and turkeys given to families in Portage County that have fallen on hard times.

The groups thank the churches, hospital, schools, surrounding businesses, the City of Ravenna and people throughout Portage County who donated food and turkeys. They also thanked Rock Tenn for the donation of boxes, Portage Community Church and the Christian Life Center for the many volunteers and the Portage County Sheriff's Office for the support.

The Christmas Giveaway will be held on Dec. 18 and 19. Food and turkeys would again be appreciated. Parents also will be shopping for their children. Toys, books, games, basketballs and other gifts for infants to 17 years of age are needed. Donations can be taken to the Center of Hope, 1034 West Main St., Ravenna.
