The Montgomery County Food Bank is hosting its Holiday Food Drive to help fight hunger. The MCFB is encouraging neighborhoods, businesses, families and civic organizations to collect nutritious, nonperishable items through Dec. 9.
“At our annual Holiday Food Drive, we see the inspiring united spirit of Montgomery County," MCFB President and CEO Allison Hulett said in a news release. "It's heartwarming to witness the power of our community when we come together to help those in need."
On Dec. 9, all collections will be dropped off at Glade Art Gallery located at 2000 Woodlands Parkway, The Woodlands, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The day will be filled with music, performances by area students, hot chocolate and a visit from Santa.
Donation items needed include:
· Canned meat (tuna, chicken, spam, even pouches, etc.)
As non-essential businesses like bars and music venues are forced to close due to coronavirus concerns, musicians find themselves performing for audiences behind computer screens and asking for virtual tips.
According to Serna, on an average day the Texas Workforce Commission’s four call centers statewide receive 13,000-14,000 calls; on March 22, the agency received 100,000 calls regarding unemployment insurance benefit inquiries.
