Filling the need: Penn Valley Seventh-day Adventist Church provides food, books on Christmas Eve

Filling the need

Penn Valley Seventh-day Adventist Church head elder Eric Flores, as well as elders Joleen Flores and Jeanie Emertton, work to feed hundreds of families during their weekly drive-thru food distribution in Penn Valley. The church decided to provide food on Christmas Eve, as other food distributions opted to postpone due to the holiday.
