Buffalo Soldiers are On The March

Local Organization Doing Good Things
By Sid Riley
On the March and working for the benefit of fellow citizens…that is what the Buffalo Soldiers of Marianna are doing. This active group of concerned local citizens is engaged in numerous projects that are designed to help their fellow citizens in times of need.

Their current project is dedicated to raising donations to assure several needy families have a memorable Thanksgiving this year. They are asking citizens to donate food to go with the turkeys the organization will donate. Last year the program made a great Thanksgiving holiday for five families, and they are hoping to increase that number this year.

Donations can be brought to the McClain Community Center on Clay Street between 3:00 and 6:00 PM, Monday thru Friday. For information call 209-2314, 482-0353, 209-4310, or 209-1172.

To submit a family for consideration, call with information by November 15. The Thanksgiving boxes will be distributed on November 21. You can help make this a great holiday for a local family by giving from your heart to help others……Thank You.
