food drive

SAN ANGELO, Texas Local organizations held a food drive to benefit Bradford area victims that were devastated by the EF2 tornado in May that impacted 130 homes.

Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (VOAD) realized there is still a tremendous need for food for residents. 

Therefore, community members pulled together to hold a food drive at Market Street on Sunset Drive, from 9:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m.

Residents were encouraged to bring nonperishable items to the volunteers.

The donated food will be distributed to Bradford area disaster victims in need through a voucher system.

We’re expecting a great turn out. The last time we had a food drive we filled a huge trolleybus full of food. We have a very generous community and I know that they’ll show up and help out our neighbors today, expressed Robyn Flores who is the Campaign Director of United Way of the Concho Valley.

If you missed the food drive, you can always drop off your donations to the Concho Valley Regional Food Bank.

They will box food donations and then send the food over to Rust Street Ministries, where residents will be able to pick up food un directly starting on the 24th of June.
