COLUMBUS – Today, State Senator Sandra Williams (D-Cleveland) is hosting a holiday food giveaway at the Glenville Elks Lodge in Cleveland. Senator Williams’ goal is to bring holiday cheer by helping those who are struggling to put food on the table in her district.  The event aims to provide nutritious holiday food to residents of Senate District 21, among them seniors, veterans, people with disabilities, children and families who are displaced.
 
“For many of us, the holidays are a time for family and friends to be grateful for the blessings in their lives and reflect on the past year.  For others, the return of colder weather adds extra strains in health and budgets,” said Senator Williams. “Many people do not know where their next meal will come from. The goal today is to help alleviate the burden for some of these struggling individuals and families.”
 
In the spirit of the holidays, Senator Williams recognizes the importance of giving back and helping those less fortunate.  She believes this time of year is especially important for the community to be unified and take care of one another. “This time of year we must be vigilant and check daily on elderly friends, relatives and neighbors who live alone, and those in need,” she added.
 
“It is important for me to give back because there are people in my district who need help. I want them to know that I hear them and that I am here for them.  I will continue to fight for them every day,” said Senator Williams. “This giveaway is a small way to show my appreciation for my constituents this holiday season.”
