‘Share Your Christmas’ Food Drive Set for December 6th
Each year the Big Country comes together for Share Your Christmas, a food drive that benefits the Food Bank of West Central Texas.
Well, it’s time once again for this annual event.
- 32nd Annual KRBC Share Your Christmas Food Drive
Date & Time
- Wednesday, December 6th
- Wal-Mart Supercenter at 4350 Southwest Drive
In addition to donations of food, monetary donations can also be accepted. With every $1 donation, the Food Bank can distribute 6.25 pounds of food, the equivalent of 5 meals!
It is because of our wonderful, caring community that the agencies who serve those in need are able to feed so many. Over 4 million pounds of food was distributed in 2016. Our 170 non-profit member agencies are seeing increases of 25% in requests for assistance, while some are seeing as much as a 50% increase. Food pantries are providing emergency food boxes to over 8,500 families each month, and our feeding programs serve over 110,000 meals each month. The Food Bank is stretched to the limit, and needs everyone’s help to finish out the year.
If you need any further information about the Share Your Christmas Food Drive, please call Jody Houston at the Food Bank of West Central Texas at 325-695-6311.
