Families Receive Holiday Baskets


MASON CITY, Iowa – It is the season of giving and that’s what one local organization did for families in need to help them enjoy thanksgiving this year.

The North Iowa Area Youth Center gave out 20 turkeys, pies, toys and canned goods to families.

Local organizations such as Family Video, Perkins and Fareway helped donate all of the items.

Brandie Johnson, a mother of six kids says receiving the goods will be a blessing to her and her family.

“We have six kids that we are caring for right now so and then getting a Thanksgiving basket will be tremendous help for us and help us out with food for the holidays.”

The North Iowa Bulls also gave tickets to the families.
