Helping Hands of Service Marion County Food Pantry needs help. Volunteer organizer Chuck Galeazzi (guh-leazy) says that the food pantry has seen an increase in use since the recent cuts to the food stamp program. Galeazzi says they are currently preparing for their holiday deliveries, and they need items for Thanksgiving. He encourages donations to be made about a week before the holiday so there is time to get baskets put together. KNIA KRLS News partners with Helping Hands and the Food Bank of Iowa to fill the food shelves in Marion County.
