About 30 volunteers gathered at Elks Lodge 1559 in Washington Friday, Dec. 4 during the annual Christmas boxes event. The volunteers filled 200 boxes in 30 minutes. The donations were distributed among the Crider Center, Hillcrest, Pregnancy Assistance Center and Your Other Mother, according to Eric Rehagen, an organizer of the event. Some boxes were left for the Elks Lodge to distribute to those in need and all leftovers were donated to area food pantries.
