Houston Food Bank Super Site Volunteering

October 31, 2020 @ 8:30 am - 1:00 pm

To all local Aggies, please consider coming out to help the Houston Food Bank with its big distribution efforts this coming Saturday, October 31, and next Saturday, September 26, where over five thousand vehicles will be processed over a from 8:30 am until 1:00 pm at the Yellow Lot of NRG Stadium.
For these 2 events, please bypass the HFB’s customary online volunteer signup process. If you can help out, simply send an email by 10:00 pm either of the next two Friday evenings to William Wade ’73 at wvwade@airmail.net. His phone # is 832-228-5430.
Volunteers should meet at the Yellow lot off of South Main (McNee exit) at 8 am. Please take the designated “volunteer” exit and NOT the exit where there will be a long line of cars lining up early. If attending, please wear comfortable clothing, tennis shoes (no open-toed shoes), hats, a mask, and sunscreen. ALL work will be done outdoors. HFB will be providing a “cool-down” tent. Please wear maroon so William can find you. There are 12-16 large tents where food is distributed, and each tent requires 10-12 people to staff.
With cleanup time, volunteers are done by 1:30 pm.
Kids aged 15+, with a parent, can volunteer. Strict CDC protocols are followed. All volunteers need to be able to consistently lift 30-40 pounds.
All first-time volunteers will get a free Houston Aggie Volunteer t-shirt, so please let William know the t-shirt sizes you may need when you email him.
