The onset of summer has caused depleted shelves at the food bank and unbearable living conditions for many area elderly. After an urgent call for help, Central Texas Medical Center associates rallied to help raise food, funds and fans.

“In my five years at the food bank, this is the worst economic times I’ve seen,” said Albert Garcia of the Hays County Food Bank.

Hospital associates donated five new fans, more than 60 lbs. of food and $125 in monetary donations to assist with the crisis. At 13 cents a can, Hays County Area Food Bank will be able to purchase 961 additional cans of food.

  1. The food bank is located on Herndon Street. They most likely will distribute the fans through the senior agencies that are clients. But, call and talk to the office for more info.

    Visit the website for more info. The summer months are very difficult with few food drives, and more need with kids home during the summer. Any donations are appreciated.
