At first glance it may look like Grace Lutheran Church is having one heack of a party, with hundreds of liquor boxes lining the floor of their community room. But, as Dick Bizier, right, says, they are just the sturdiest boxes to carry all of the food they are giving away for Thanksgiving. Bizier, 78, who has been organizing the Thanksgiving food drive for the past 23 years for the church, Barb Hillier, left, and others fill the boxes with turkeys, potatoes, apples, cereal and many other items that will sustain approximately 70 families for several weeks after Thanksgiving. 'This is the largest year so far,' says Bizier who adds that the food is given to 21 families from Fun Time Nursery, the Naples Shelter for Abused Women and Children, St. Matthew's House and several families in the Manatee School area of East Naples.
