Last night at our town hall meeting in Houston, we held a donation drive to help Kids Meals. Kids Meals is a local non-profit organization that delivers meals to 1,400 pre-school aged children, living in poverty and are in need of food. The meals are delivered to the homes of the children during the week and are free of cost to the families. The social and community service teams in the office joined forces to collect donations in the three major categories Kid Meals needs to continue to carry out their mission of ending hunger among children.
Houston had three stations for food, supplies and monetary donations. The competitive spirit in the staff left many people attempting to bring in the highest quantity in donations. In addition to helping out the community, if individuals participated they were given a raffle ticket to have an opportunity to win a prize from the giveaway table!
