The families included 182 adults and 267 children.
The Copley Police Department also distributed toys and gift cards to each family. Winter wear such as gloves, hats and scarves were donated by the Copley Outreach Center.
The entire process involves about 30 Kiwanis members, members of the Kiwanis Key Club at Copley High School, approximately 40 community volunteers, including parents and students, the Copley Police Department and members of the Copley United Methodist Church Outreach Center, according to Kiwanis officials.
On Dec. 22, the volunteers unloaded a semi-truck and sorted, categorized and distributed all food items into boxes for each family, shown above. These families picked up the boxes the same day.
