Snow cones offered for food donations today

GREENVILLE — Munching on a snow cone might sound pretty good this afternoon, as temperatures are expected to again rise into the triple digits.

Getting a snow cone for free, in exchange for a donation of a non-perishable food item, might taste even better.

Odyssey Hospice is sponsoring a food drive between noon until 6 p.m. today at the parking lot of Coker-Mathews Funeral Home, 5100 Interstate 30 Frontage Road in Greenville.

All donations of non-perishable food items will be provided to Hands of Compassion in Greenville. Organizers are asking that any expiration dates on the donations be for at least six months or more in the future.

Texas Snow will be on hand and will provide a free snow cone for donations.

Hands of Compassion is a ministry on Pickett Street behind First Baptist Church in downtown Greenville designed to impact the physical and spiritual needs of people in Greenville and Hunt County.

Those wanting additional information about Hands of Compassion can contact Newman Peters at 903-408-9903.
