Houston Holidays: Food & Toys for Families in Need
PUBLISHED DECEMBER 13, 2019
In Houston, our associates were hard at work to make the holidays bright for families in need.
Houston Food Bank recently lost 1.8 million pounds of food due to a malfunction with a cooling unit. However, our Houston team quickly sprang into action and hosted a food drive so that the families can have nutritious meals for Thanksgiving. Last year EWB Texas donated 252 pounds of food, and this year, 503 pounds was donated in just two days! The Houston Food Bank feeds 800,000 hungry people each year, and we are proud to play our part.
To make the holidays sweeter, our Houston rockstars also partnered with BE A Resource for CPS Kids (BEAR) to host a toy drive to provide brand-new holiday gifts to children under the care of Child Protective Services (CPS).
