Crosslines distributes food to nearly 1,000 families in the Ozarks
Crosslines Thanksgiving Food Distribution Tradition continues despite COVID-19 obstacles
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. (KY3) - Hundreds of cars lined the Ozark Empire Fairgrounds on Saturday for Crosslines of Springfield’s annual Thanksgiving Food Distribution Day.
Tom Faulkner is the Director of Crosslines. He said the Thanksgiving Food Distribution has been a tradition since 1975. While the planning process had obstacles, organizers weren’t going to let the pandemic break the tradition.
Distribution day looked and flowed differently, but through teamwork and precautionary safety modifications, Crosslines distributed food to nearly 1,000 families Saturday.
With safety at the forefront and the mission to help the community at the top of mind, Crosslines took proper safety precautions while making the event happen. It was a drive-thru style and only 35 volunteers a shift, which is significantly fewer volunteers than years past.
