Today Show Featuring Houston Food Bank Distribution

December 15, 2020 @ 6:00 am - 10:00 am

The Houston Food Bank will be featured on NBC’s the Today Show on Tuesday, December 15 and we need Houston Aggie Volunteers to help serve at our tent! Holiday meals and turkeys will be distributed to nearly 2,000 vehicles.

Volunteers are needed from 6:00-10:00 a.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, water and Gatorade 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.

If you are interested in volunteering or have any questions, please contact William Wade ’73 wvwade@airmail.net
(832) 228-5430 or Jim Thorpe ’78 thorpejim@comcast.net (713) 249-4678 by 9:00 pm Monday, December 14.

Watch for additional information about volunteer opportunities at the primary warehouse of the Houston Food Bank for the balance of December.
