The annual drive to provide food and toys for 500 local families began in earnest Nov. 1, as participating businesses have provided brightly wrapped barrels ready to receive non-perishable food and new, unwrapped presents. The community is encouraged help with the sorting on Dec. 17 and the distribution on Dec. 18, both events taking place at Brentwood Elementary School, 200 Griffith Lane.
