After hearing reports of shortages at the Hays County Area Food Bank, the Sierra Circle and Sagewood neighborhoods got together for a food drive to help replenish the shelves. Earlier in the week, neighbors coordinated to send out emails and distribute grocery bags provided by HEB. On Saturday, they made their rounds, collecting enough food to fill the bed and the cab of a pickup truck, as well as over $700 in donations.
Ted Marchut, Sierra Circle neighborhood representative, said, “It was great to see the two neighborhoods working together like this. We didn’t have any email addresses for anyone on Sagewood, so the first that anyone over there knew about the food drive was when they walked out their doors on Friday morning and saw the bags and notes we had left. Still, Saturday morning the bags were out there waiting for us in both neighborhoods.”Email | Print
