VALLEYWIDE, TX – Help the Food Bank RGV, H-E-B and CBS 4 collect schools for struggling families, August 10, 2017!  Fill the Bus is a single-day school supply drive located at the H-E-B stores at Paredes Line Road, Brownsville; Shary Road, Mission and the CBS 4 Studios in Harlingen, Texas.  Local businesses are needed to sponsor Fill the Bus, from 9 am to 6 pm, August 10, 2017.

New supplies and monetary donations can be dropped off at the designated locations.  Online donations can be made at: http://www.foodbankrgv.com.  Need items include: crayons, glue, colored pencils, construction paper, dry erase markers and loose-leaf notebook paper.

Every year, 60% of families that use the Food Bank RGV have to decide between paying for quality food or medicine and medical bills.  The burden gets heavier when August comes around and children need new clothing and school supplies for a new school year.  With the Food Bank RGV’s School Tools program, we help over 50 elementary school campuses direct new school supplies to the children that need it the most.  But now we need your help.

For more information contact: Erica Lechuga, School Tools Manager, at (956) 904-4528 or by email at [email protected].  Also visit http://www.foodbankrgv.com at any time for information regarding other programs and events.
