Bonding over their love of the Dallas Cowboys NFL team and their community, the Star Status Cowboys Connection of Ohio (SSCCO) successfully hosted their 6th Annual Feed The Need Community Wide Fish Fry on Saturday, June 25. While set up on Madison Avenue, the nonprofit organization cooked up fresh fried fish meals for over 150 people, with an assortment of sides, desserts, and snacks to take for later.
Cookie Palacios, a member of the organization, said that this event was close to her heart.
“It makes me feel good when we can come out here to put a smile on people’s faces and help them,” Palacios exclaimed.
In addition to the hot meal, the organization gave away free clothing and items to those who needed them. Those who were not in need were asked to give donations to further help their cause.
Mark Lockett Sr., president and founder of SSCCO, says that they are a club with a conscience.
“Any of us could be needy at any time. We [SSCCO] let them know that they are still appreciated. We like to give back to the community, and the community helps us with this. They donate money, products, anything we need to put this on successfully year after year,” Lockett said.
