The St. Vincent DePaul Society in Butts County handed out 52 food baskets and gave grocery gift cards to eight more families to serve a total of 60 families during a “Drive-In Food Pantry” at Saint Mary Mother of God Catholic Church in Jackson on Saturday.

The St. Vincent DePaul Society (SDVP) is known for assisting local families with their needs for essentials, such as utilities, gasoline cards, home repair projects, and rent assistance, but decided to focus their efforts Saturday on families’ most basic need — food.
