Helping Feed Our Neighbors

At times like this, Americans do what we have always done best: we pull together to ensure that we stand against any threat. We take care of each other. We look outside ourselves to help others—including people we don’t know and never will.


The Foundation has been delivering food weekly to Milton and Wayne Townships since the COVID-19 pandemic began. We’ve also donated to the Central Texas Food Pantry and, most recently, to a food pantry in Addison. We are deeply grateful to all who have donated funds that helped us provide the food/goods we’ve delivered. And we’re not stopping!


Now we have another way for you to be involved: Get a group together—your department? or recruit another department(s)? your family? your kids’ sports teams? or any group you can think of......and do a “Help Our Needy Neighbors” drive.
