An­nual Stocks fam­ily meal com­ing up on Nov. 17

The Standard Journal - - LOCAL - Staff re­ports

The Stocks fam­ily is back for their 10th year of help­ing the com­mu­nity and mak­ing sure that no one goes with­out at least one serv­ing of turkey and dress­ing dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son, and maybe even make the year brighter for a fam­ily.

Rock­mart’s Nathan Dean Com­mu­nity Cen­ter on Goodyear Av­enue is once again play­ing host for the forth­com­ing event, sched­uled for Satur­day, Nov. 17 dur­ing the mid­day hours. Flore­ace Stocks, who an­nu­ally helps or­ga­nize the fam­ily-run event, said the event will con­tinue on so long as there is food to last.

Ad­di­tion­ally, the fam­ily wishes to con­tinue hand­ing out coats to those in need, and hav­ing presents avail­able for chil­dren in at­ten­dance as well.

Do­na­tions are be­ing ac­cepted for coats, food and even presents for the fam­ily to hand out dur­ing the up­com­ing Thanks­giv­ing meal hap­pen­ing the week­end ahead of the hol­i­day.

Stocks said any help that any­one would like to give in putting to­gether the event, or with the God’s Lov­ing An­gels pro­gram, would be ap­pre­ci­ated. Those in­ter­ested in lend­ing their as­sis­tance can reach her at 678-719-1981.

Stocks, who is also part of the God’s Lov­ing An­gels or­ga­ni­za­tion, said that group will be also tak­ing part in an up­com­ing hol­i­day do­na­tion to Rock­mart Health, the post-acute nurs­ing and re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion fa­cil­ity in early De­cem­ber.
