Community Volunteers in Effort to Send Food to West
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
Many Coastal Bend residents have been stepping up to help send food donations to West, Texas, after that disastrous explosion.
Bea Hanson, executive director of the Food Bank of Corpus Christi, said church groups from all around the Coastal Bend along with Ray High School students have been volunteering their time in order to put together boxes of food.
"They help us put together 500 boxes in two hours," Hanson said.
Hanson said they needed help after receiving a request from the State Association of Food Banks for food donations to go to the town of West.
