The program aims to provide needy families with a foodbox that will last for a week during the Christmas season. This special project brings together over 1,500 volunteers from local churches and faith based ministries who help pack and distribute the boxes. Four out of five families below the poverty line make the choice between buying food and presents during the holdiays. Texas has one of the highest percentages of families living below the poverty line of any state in the nation.
