Local restaurateur Akira McNeil, co-owner of Akira's Scratch Bistro in downtown Killeen, is once again stepping up to help out some local families who need some help this holiday season. "I started this last year because when I was in the band Downsiid, finding out we had fans who needed help, we would do fundraisers for them. This was a way to continue that effort and to give to those needing it the most this time of the year."
Unlike the typical seasonal toy drive, "Season of Giving" efforts seek to provide the families with things they need year round. CenTexFun.com is glad to participate in this seasonal show of love and we encourage our readers to do so as well.
