Visalia Emergency Aid Council get a facelift
VISALIA, Calif. (KFSN) -- A Visalia non-profit that feeds those in need got a face-lift.
Saturday morning workers from Lowe's donated their time and supplies to fix up the Visalia Emergency Aid Council. A local Boy Scouts group also took the time to help renovate the facility.
Staff members say the non-profit has provided food, clothing and shelter to people in the area for more than 80 years. Saturday, volunteers in the community planted a herb garden, refinished floors and put in new doors at the organization's headquarters.
"We have been very lucky that someone in the community -- whether it's a business or a non-profit organization, a club or just the residents in Visalia -- have come to our aid," said Iris East with Visalia Emergency Aid Council.
Staff members say the non-profit feeds about 14,000 families every year but their food pantry is running low.
