As the year 2012 comes to an end, the Black Diamond Community Center has a food bank full of food to feed the hungry; warm coats and blankets to take away the winter chill; and activities for seniors, youth and community groups that keep us healthy. All this is made possible with the help of so many people, businesses, service groups and churches, and all of you who just stop by and drop off food and clothes.
