Can Drive Success!

SHAC and the Granger Food Pantry would like to say thank you to all who supported the food drive. We had such a wonderful turn out. We took 2 full car loads to the pantry! Helping our community and serving others is a rewarding experience that we hope will empower our kids and continue their desire to help others.
