Families in the Gering school district who receive food on the weekends from the Pup-Pack program will get an extra gift this year, Christmas meals.

Pup-Pack coordinator Tracey Steele says the meals are being provided through the generosity of a group of business people, Dr. Jerry Upp—Midtown Animal Hospital, Steve and Andy Doll—Johnson Cashway Lumber and Betty and Dean Tripoli—Thermaflo Equipment.

Steele says if the donation is anything like last year, the families will get a ham, a bag of potatoes, vegetables, rolls, and dessert. Steele says it is the second year in a row the same people  have donated the meals to the Pup-Pack program.

Steele says in addition to the Pup-pack families, twenty other families identified by counselors in the district will also receive meals provided by the group. 62 families will be assisted in all.

The meals will be delivered Tuesday at the various Gering schools.
