Local Welfare League faces record number of food basket requests

Lebanon — As of Monday, a record number of 625 people were on the list for a Christmas food basket provided by the Lebanon Welfare League.

“We are at an all-time high for names,” said Sue Ellen Muncie, secretary-treasurer of the LWL’s 75th annual food drive.

The league, which gathers Christmas dinner items for needy families, is a project of the Kappa Delta Phi sorority. The sorority has been organizing the effort since 1962, when the program’s founder, Harry Jones, retired after 25 years.
