Visalia Emergency Aid Council get a facelift


Saturday morning workers from Lowe's donated their time and supplies to fix up the Visalia Emergency Aid Council. A local Boy Scouts group also took the time to help renovate the facility.

Staff members say the non-profit has provided food, clothing and shelter to people in the area for more than 80 years. Saturday, volunteers in the community planted a herb garden, refinished floors and put in new doors at the organization's headquarters.

"We have been very lucky that someone in the community -- whether it's a business or a non-profit organization, a club or just the residents in Visalia -- have come to our aid," said Iris East with Visalia Emergency Aid Council.

Staff members say the non-profit feeds about 14,000 families every year but their food pantry is running low.
