Through the efforts of a local civic organization, one Abbeville family has plenty to be thankful for on this holiday.
Members of the Abbeville Kiwanis Club delivered food and supplies for a Thanksgiving meal to Theresa Sonnier and her family of five.
“We are so grateful,” said Sonnier. “This is much needed.”
Sonnier’s family is on a fixed income.
“We would not have been able to have a Thanksgiving without this,” Sonnier said emotionally.
Kiwanis Club President Andrew Dozier said the club is extremely happy to help.
“This is in the spirit of Thanksgiving,” Dozier said. “As Kiwanians, that’s part of our mission, to give back.”
The club presented the family with several boxes full of food and supplies to make a traditional Thanksgiving meal. The donation also included other food items and cleaning supplies.
“We hope this does some small part to help this family,” Dozier said.
For Sonnier, this is an example that there are people out there who are thinking of others.
“It is nice to know that there are people out there who still go out of their way to help others,” Sonnier said. “It is such a great thing that they are doing.
“I cannot tell you how grateful we are.”
