The Clark County Food Pantry Volunteers have been "working overtime" to get everything ready for the distribution of Thanksgiving Baskets this year. On Monday volunteers met at the Kahoka Christian Church for the distribution. After an individual received their items at the church, they were able to go to Mac’s Super Saver to pick up their turkey. Pictured above are a few of the volunteers who helped in this years distribution.

The holiday season is rapidly approaching. During this time, it is important to remember the joy we can give to others. In a joint effort, Kahoka State Bank and Sever Library will once again sponsor the Angel Tree for needy children through 16 years of age in our community.
Angel trees went up this past week at Kahoka State Bank locations in Kahoka & Wayland! Deadline to have gifts back to the bank is December 10th. Sign up is at the Library and last day to sign up is Friday, December 3rd.
Participants will need to pick up packages on December 20th at Kahoka State Bank by 4:30p.m. using the front door. Community support has made this a very successful program and we hope this year will provide some happiness for the boys and girls in our community.
Thank you for your support and cooperation.
