Groups team up to give food, supplies to families

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — About 200 families from the Des Moines area received food and household supplies thanks to the Salvation Army of Des Moines and an Oklahoma City-based organization.

A truck loaded with groceries and household supplies was unloaded Thursday afternoon at a Salvation Army center, where the items were given to pre-selected families.

Those families all have children under 18 years old, or children with special needs.

The nonprofit Christian group Feed The Children sent the truck.
