The Atascosa First Seventhday Adventist Church in Poteet, along with the Pathfinders and Adventurers Club would like to thank everyone in helping with the 2011 Food Drive which was held on Saturday, Nov. 18.

With your help in giving, we were able to make 32 food baskets which were distributed to families in the Atascosa County areas. The families were so thankful for all the generosity that was given during the Thanksgiving holiday.

As we continue in giving to those needing a helping hand, the Pathfinders and Adventurers Club were in the Pleasanton area on Sunday, Dec. 11 as they went ingathering and Christmas Caroling.

The donations raised will be going toward the Texas Adventist Community Service this organization is active in Disaster Response. Texas is no stranger to disasters and when they strike, we (TACS) are ready to respond to the survivors. Two Semi-trailers are ready equipped to serve as Mobile Distribution Centers. Each truck can hold prepacked clothing, outfits, bedding and personal care kits to assist over 1,700 people.
