"Can" Do Attitude on Display at Central Texas Food Bank
On February 25, twenty of our fellow Blue Action Dems met at the Central Texas Food Bank to volunteer to help feed hungry Texans. With no training and minimal instruction, our team assembled 115 healthy Power Pack boxes in 20 minutes flat!
And that just whet our appetites. Next came the true test of endurance. We took our positions on both sides of a conveyor belt, and during the next 100 minutes, assembled hundreds of emergency food boxes. When needed, these boxes will be promptly shipped to communities who have experienced an emergency and are in desperate need of relief.
I’m proud to report that our efforts were instrumental in generating 3,729 meals! Our kids also rolled their sleeves up – notable was seven year old Willow Brown (Carrie’s daughter), who filled boxes for two solid hours with not so much as a water break – I can’t say the same about my 17 year-old .
Bottom line is that we had a great time and made a difference for our community, all in the spirit of GSD!
Blue Action Dems will continue to support our community through the newly minted Social and Service Committee, which will plan and execute three more volunteer events and two social events throughout 2019. A plan is currently in the works for an outdoor, family-friendly volunteer event to be held in April/May timeframe and a happy hour in June. If you get excited about volunteering and socializing, please stay tuned for these events and even consider joining our committee!
