Volunteers Coming to the Aid of the Food Bank of Corpus Christi

Posted: Updated:
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) - The Coastal Bend community is stepping up to help the Food Bank of Corpus Christi get some perishable items to the folks that need them.

After 3News aired a story Tuesday night about the need for volunteers at the Food Bank, four groups signed up and 30 people called to offer their help. However, the need to lend a helping hand doesn't stop there.

"This is going to get us going, but we are just starting the summer and we have months to come with lots of children coming out of school, and the heat probably affecting families," said Bea Hanson, executive director of the Food Bank of Corpus Christi.

In order to get more work done, the Food Bank has extended their work day until 8 p.m. For more information on how you can volunteer, visit www.foodbankcc.com.
