Hurst city manager Ted Wanner said the food pantry runs solely on donations.

"Unfortunately, there are a lot of older folks and people with injuries, that sort of thing, that are on disability that get one check a month and that's all they get," Wanner said. so we try to help them out on a monthly basis."

The food drive ends Monday night, when Harrison's plans to hold its raffle drawing.
