Frisco Family Services, in its ongoing commitment to serve its local Frisco and Frisco ISD community, is holding its first-ever Community-wide Food Drive on Saturday, July 20 to help ensure local families in crisis don’t go hungry.
The summer months are especially difficult for families in crisis and often referred to as “hungry season.” Children on the free and reduced lunch program during the school year now require extra meals at home each day. The cost of keeping homes cool, along with gas, water, and other utilities continues to increase. Executive Director of Frisco Family Services, Nicole S. Bursey shared,
While an increase in hunger during the summer is hard to see with all the business development that is going on around us, the problem is real. With school out, and utility expenses rising, we're seeing more and more families walk through our doors not knowing how they will feed their family.
Ensuring that everyone has food to eat is critical – especially our children and seniors. As a community, we can rally together and make this happen. Let’s come together to make our FeedFrisco initiative a priority. Donate to our summer Community-wide Food Drive and help ensure no one goes hungry in our community.
Have an immediate and lasting impACT on our local community this summer by participating in Frisco Family Services Community-wide Food Drive. Donate critical food pantry items directly to Frisco's only community Food Pantry.
July 20, 2019 | 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
