The event included a raffle, with two computers awarded to Shantelle McPherson and Maria Carreon, and many special toys given away to families.
Another feature of the day was the participation by retired Harlem Globetrotters, who signed autographs and helped distribute the food packages.
The distribution was held in the parking lot of Jed’s Home Center on Aldine Mail Route.
