The Impact of Giving 

Give to Game 2012 was a great success! We had 106 people attend, we collected 337 pounds of food and $3,069. This donation translates into 6,408 meals for hungry Bastrop County residents. This donation comes at  the perfect time for the Food Pantry, which sees a reduction in donations during the summer months. Tresha, the Executive Director, pointed out to us yesterday how many of their shelves are bare. This donation will make a very large impact on the Pantry and the community as a whole. According to Tresha, Bastrop is seeing an increase in the number of homeless people in the community due to the fires. The need is great and continues to grow. When you do your giving this year please remember the Bastrop County Food Pantry.  

As we close out this years Give to Game, I would like to thank our sponsors both big and small as well as everyone who came to the event and gave! Thank you for helping us have another successful event. We look forward to seeing you all next year!
