Lisa Harrod, Lawrence, carefully avoids a bicycle locked to a light post as she ties garland to the post on Massachusetts Street in downtown Lawrence on Sunday, Nov. 20, 2011. Volunteers from Just Food spent a couple of hours volunteering to hang garland in exchange for being adopted by Downtown Lawrence, Inc. as its holiday charity. Downtown Lawrence donated $1,500 to the charity, which will fund about 7,500 meals. Food donation bins will also be placed around downtown Lawrence from Thanksgiving until Christmas and downtown shops will collect monetary donations during that time. Just Food estimates that every dollar donated will create five meals and has a goal of getting $5,000 in donations this holiday season.
