Fan, food drive helps ease hunger, heat


From Central Texas Medical Center

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. Pictured here, local EMS techs are joined by Albert Garcia and
