Again this year, our Ball High School students are coordinating the 38th annual ABC-13 "Share Your Holidays" Food Drive, which will be from 6 a.m. to noon at 4115 Ave. O in Galveston.
We're asking the community to bring nonperishable food items to help us help those in need throughout Galveston County. We will have students on hand to take your contribution from you as you drive through, so you won't have to leave your automobile to make your donation.
Items most needed include cereal, whole grain pasta and rice, peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables, canned meats and canned tuna fish, canned beans and soup, hygiene items, household cleaning items, and paper products. For children: fruit cups, granola bars, and juice boxes. For seniors: most-needed items include nutritional shakes and drinks, as well as adult hygiene products.
All contributions made in Galveston County stay in Galveston County and will be administered by the Galveston County Food Bank. Last year, you helped us bring in over 18,000 pounds of nonperishable food items — our largest collection ever! We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing you this Friday at Ball High School.
