Each year Volunteers of America Western Nebraska provides Christmas Baskets for families in need. Youth groups raise funds and collect food, and church members and groups also donate cash and food for the food pantry. Last week the GCHS National Honor Society students assisted the VOA in putting together food baskets to help assist families in Garden County. Thanks to their help, all 165 baskets were put together in about an hour. Our local VOA continually reaches out to empower people of all ages to achieve wellness — complete physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual well-being — supporting children, families and communities. We are very fortunate to have Volunteers of America right here in Garden County.   more
