Holtzman companies reach out to needy

In a time when giving is especially appreciated, the Holtzman Companies were able to triple the donations that they received last year and help out three local organizations.
After many weeks of collecting, Holtzman employees and other community members pulled together to help those in need this holiday season.
According to Babs Holtzman, they delivered a total of 1,091 items to the Liberty Humane Shelter, including a fax machine, beds and bags of food, 731 cans of food for Manna House, and provided blankets, slippers and other items to the 108 residents of the Coastal Manor Nursing Home.
Rev. William Carter, who works with Manna House, transported all the goods from the Holtzman’s office.
“The Manna House has extreme needs, and the outpouring of generosity by businesses in Liberty County and the Holtzmans is particularly appreciated this time of year,” he said.
Sandra Frye, president of the Liberty Humane Shelter, echoed Carter’s sentiment.
“We struggle all the time to try and keep things going, so when the community gets involved like this, it makes me know I’m doing the right thing,” said a teary-eyed Frye on Tuesday, while looking at the pile of donated pet supplies at the shelter.
“It’s just so overwhelming.”
Holtzman thanked the community for its support and praised her employees for their hard work.
