SEVEN POINTS/TOOLBrookshires Grocery Store in Seven Points is hosting a
community food drive Saturday, Sept. 4.
The all-day event to launch the Labor Day weekend is meant to restock supplies at the food
pantry, located at the Cedar Creek Lake Methodist Church.
Five churches contribute to the west-side food pantry, and one church member has put up
$100 as a giveaway that day.
Anyone donating four or more nonperishable items to the pantry will have a chance to win.
To liven things up, KCKL-Radio will be broadcasting live from the Brookshires
parking lot that day.
Also, the store and Dr. Pepper will be offering a hot dog lunch menu with all proceeds
going to the community food pantry.
To further draw attention to the event, Carter BloodCare will also be on-site, giving
shoppers an opportunity to donate a life-giving gift.
Brookshires recently marked its fifth year in business in Seven Points and store
manager Scott Andrews says he sees the event as another way for the store to say thank you
to the community for its patronage.
The store also provided cases of bottled water to the Kemp school district Thursday, when
the city ran out of water due to a sequence of major water line breaks.
Thanks in part to their donation, children were kept safely in school where they had
access to water.
Pantry volunteer Nancy Fraser says that in any given month the pantry supplies food for
about 80 families or 250 people.
Were open 11 a.m. to noon every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
The pantry is supported by the members of the Aley and Cedar Creek Lake United Methodist
churches, Providence and Tool Baptist churches and the St. Jude Catholic Church.

|The domino effect is a chain reaction that occurs when a small
change causes a similar change nearby, which then will cause another similar change, and
so on. My name is Domino, and I got my name not only because Im black and white like
a domino tile, but also because my outgoing, cheerful personality causes my doggie
roommates to smile. This also causes our human friends to smile, which even causes the
kitties in the cat room to smile.
I am an 8-month-old male Pointer/Terrier mix. I love children, other dogs, and even get
along great with kitties. Ive had all my shots and am ready to be adopted. If
youd like to experience the domino effect, I am sure to put a forever smile on your
face when you take me to my forever home.
I currently live with a foster family, so if you would like to meet me, call my friends at
the Humane Society of Cedar Creek Lake at (903) 432-3422 to make an appointment. You can
also email them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
