Thanks to both the Texas Rangers and our regular team from Amazon for serving our clients on both of the food lines we had running today at the Community Food Bank. In addition to our regular food pantry line, we also had a line of USDA food products delivered by the Tarrant Area Food Bank, which happens on the 4th Wednesday of each month.
Bethany Holuv, the Assistant for the Foundation Department for the Rangers, helped pass out bags of brown long-grain rice to our clients. She shared the following about their organizations service to the North Texas community: “We partner with Whataburger. Our foundation and corporate partnerships group comes out here. We try to do it twice a year. We are here just trying to get back to the community.” Bethany has been with the Rangers for three seasons. A more recent member of the team is Stephanie Gaytan, a Client Services Coordinator under Corporate Sales, who has been with the Rangers organization for 6 months. She was sorting through bags of premium black seedless grapes to make sure our clients got only the best ones. “We are helping out the community over here in Tarrant County, just volunteering with the food bank,” she shared.
Inside our facility where the regular food pantry line distributes food to an average of 600+ families per weekday, Amazon workers filled food boxes with a generous helping of food products including plenty of vegetables and three packages of meat. Debbie Czako, who has been with Amazon for 3 years, was one of this month’s group of volunteers. She worked on stuffing the food boxes while other Amazon volunteers worked to make the food distribution go slowly on the outside of the food pantry door. We thank each of these wonderful volunteers from both organization for making a difference in feeding families and feeding hope here in North Texas.
