Names of families who received assistance were provided to Secret Families through area schools. This year, families from Tri, Shenandoah, Blue River and Knightstown received assistance.A well-oiled machine of volunteers gathered to purchase the gifts at Walmart, load them into trucks and trailers and drive the merchandise to First Baptist Church where the gifts were wrapped and distributed to area families in need, all on the same day. Local restaurants, including Jack’s Donuts, Cafe Royal, Primo and Applebee’s donated food to feed the volunteers during the day’s activities.
