MILLER COUNTY, Ark. (KTAL/KMSS) – Harvest Regional Food Bank donated a hundred boxes filled with food to the Rural Volunteer Firefighters Association on Thursday.

The volunteer firefighters said they’ll distribute the boxes to the elderly throughout the rural areas where they serve. The association is made up of nine volunteer fire departments in Miller County. 

“Most of the areas that we cover are down close to the Louisiana line, and a lot of them throughout the whole county are a lot of retired, elderly people who live on nothing but social security, they’re hurting right now,” said Miller Co. Rural Volunteer Firefighters Association Chairman George Goynes.

The boxes will be distributed starting at 10 a.m. Friday, March 27, at the Miller Co. Rural Fire Department Training Center located at 210 Miller Co. 492 in Genoa, Ark. Organizers say this location is across the street from 4620 MC 10 in Genoa, Ark.

If you need a box delivered, call Clayton Green at (870) 648-0310. They are available to those in need that are at least 60 years old.
