Share Your Holidays Food Drive

 

  The need for food is up 40% this year according the Houston Food Bank which services an 18 county area surrounding Houston. Times are hard, no doubt, but you can help make things easier for a family this season.
  When you do your Thanksgiving shopping take the time to add a few extra items in your grocery cart and bring them to the library on or before December 4th.  This year’s annual Share Your Holidays Food Drive takes place at the Maud Marks branch from 6am-6pm on Friday, December 4th.
  We’ll have Volunteers at the Food Drive the entire day to take your donations of nonperishable food. The Maud Marks Library is the designated food drive location for the Katy area.  Food donated here stays in the community!
Hope to see you there!
