The Del Rio News-Herald directed $10,000 this week to Val Verde Loaves and Fishes, to help the community pantry feed needy families during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond.

The gift came via the Carmage and Martha Ann Walls Foundation, which allows publishers at all Southern Newspapers Inc.-owned papers to choose a local non-profit to receive funds each year.
