Keeping needy families fed through the holidays

Although most public school children are enjoying their holiday break, the North Central Florida United Way is still working to bring help to those children most in need. President Debbie Mason says they host a number of drives and programs to bring food, clothing and other essential supplies to those in need- even outside the school room.
