Cabot groups plan fundraiser for food boxes

Cabot Christmas Alliance and Christmas for Kids are working on preparations for distributing food boxes and toys to families in the Cabot School District.

Last year, more than 700 families were assisted during the Christmas season and it is anticipated that the need will be even greater this year.

The school district will host a fundraiser two different nights for this organization. Principals from around the school district will serve customers at Larry’s Pizza in Cabot and all tips and donations will go to help purchase food and items for kids and families for Christmas.

Fundraiser dates are 5 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 23, and Thursday, Nov. 15.
