Mike Covert, president and owner of Covert Aire, center, unloads 2,500 pounds of food with the help of Rose Marie Speaks, of Beaufort, volunteer, left, and Paul Graham, vice chairman of the board at Help of Beaufort, right, at HELP of Beaufort on December 31, 2013. Steve Curless, president of HELP of Beaufort, not pictured, said "the donations will provide about 250 people with food. This donation came at a good time because it will help stock out shelves for the drier times that are common in January - when donations begin to wane." THEOPHIL SYSLO — Staff photo Buy Photo
