This year we have decided to reach out to one specific area of Central Texas, Bastrop County. During the month of September devastating wild fires destroyed 1,500 homes—displacing thousands of Bastrop residence. Poor insurance or lack of insurance has left many families with nothing. Many of the families turned to the Bastrop County Food Pantry for assistance causing a large increase in request for services. Before the fires 17% of the County residents were considered at-risk of hunger. The fires have caused more families to be at-risk. These families need your help. Every dollar raised and every bag of food collected will be going directly to the Bastrop County Food Pantry. Please give and give generously at our event.
