Last Monday, Homer Community Food Pantry distributed over 250 Thanksgiving boxes and they're just getting started on their yearly collaboration with Share the Spirit to make and distribute Christmas boxes.

Because of job loss and slow downs due to COVID, need has escalated alongside the rising number of cases on the Peninsula. In order to operate safely, Dennis Weidler from the Homer Food Pantry says they've had to scale down from 30 volunteers to 10 volunteers, and they're exclusively a drive-through operation.

Holiday season in Homer always means increased efforts to aid people in need, but what will that look like this year?

Share the Spirit, a local nonprofit that provides Christmas meals for families and gifts for children in need, is up against a tight deadline. The group needs gifts for roughly 200 children by Thursday.  In the interest of full disclosure, KBBI would like to note that Share the Spirit is one of KBBI’s underwriters.
