The Houston Food Bank and the Houston Fire Department are partnering together on Saturday, December 19 for a special holiday distribution of food and toys and they need the Houston Aggie Volunteers to help out!

Volunteers are needed from 6:30 a.m.-3:15 p.m. and will receive an orientation.

Volunteer details: Volunteers must be 15 years or older and most volunteers will be expected to lift 25-30 pounds repetitively. If you are unable to load the food items, there are many other volunteer roles as well, so don’t hesitate to come out. Volunteers should wear (weather appropriate) A&M gear and bring a mask, work gloves, a hat, sunscreen, and small cutting knife. A snack and lunch are provided. Volunteers will receive a free HAMC volunteer t-shirt.

All CDC protocols will be followed, including taking of temperatures.

Parking Information: Traffic is expected to be very heavy. Avoid the big intersection at South Main and Loop 610S. Volunteer parking in the Yellow Lot is off of McNee Street, there are signs indicating volunteer parking, then walk to the small group of tents on the right. It is highly recommended that you approach the NRG complex from the North.
