CLAY COUNTY, Ind. (WTHI) - You can help fill little bellies this holiday season!

The Clay County Youth Food Program is once again doing its Christmas delivery. The Christmas delivery feeds hundreds over Christmas break, and takes $15,000 dollars to put on.

The program received a $9,500 grant for Christmas Delivery from Duke Energy this year. The program says at that point, they were still $5,500 dollars short for Christmas. However, they say Berea Christian Church recently donated $3,000 for the Christmas Delivery. At this point, the program says it is still $2,500 dollars short.

Donations for the food program can be taken to the Clay County YMCA.

The program will also need help moving and packing the food. The program will be delivering food to the children's homes on December 21, 2017. Volunteers will meet at the Clay County 4-H Fairgrounds at 9:30 a.m. to pack food and deliver the food.

The program says it will also need help moving food from the Clay County Chamber of Commerce building and First Baptist Church to the 4-H Fairgrounds and setting up, starting at 5:30 pm on December 20, 2017.

For more on how you can help, contact the Clay County YMCA at 812-442-6761.
