Today, members of the Greenwood Fraternal Order of Police will deliver Good Cheer baskets to residents in the northern part of the county.

On Tuesday, members of the Edinburgh Fire Department will do the same in the southern part of the county. And still more volunteers will fan out across the rest of the county to deliver the remaining baskets.

In total, organizers planned to distribute at least 775 baskets to families in need this season. Each basket contains a ham, fresh eggs, milk and potatoes, plus canned goods to last another few days. For many families, receiving a Good Cheer basket means having a nutritionally balanced meal for the first time in months.
