    Central Texas Food Bank Donations Urgently Needed

    Central Texas Food Bank is experiencing a dramatic increase in the need for their services and one of their major fundraising events has been canceled, leaving them in dire need of funding to bridge the gap. You can help by donating online; a $25 donation provides 100 meals for families in need. Get your friends and neighbors involved by hosting a virtual food drive or Facebook fundraiser. If everyone pitches in, the food bank can keep up with the demand caused by the pandemic and ensure no family in the community goes hungry.
