First Service Credit Union Hosting Donation Drive for Houston Food Bank


Non-perishable food can be donated from October 16 - November 17 at any First Service Credit Union community branch.

Houston, TX, October 14, 2017 --(PR.com)-- First Service Credit Union is hosting a donation drive collecting food and supplies to help replenish the Houston Food Bank and assist with their disaster relief efforts.

The Houston Food Bank has been overwhelmed as Houston residents struggle to recover from Hurricane Harvey. The massive storm struck the Texas coast on August 25 and brought with it record rainfall and flooding that displaced an estimated 32,000 people in southeast Texas and directly impacted thousands more. Over 210,000 people have registered for federal disaster assistance related to Hurricane Harvey.

Donations can be brought to any of First Service Credit Union’s seven community branches October 16 through November 17 during lobby operating hours.

First Service is encouraging donations of:
• Ready-to-eat pull-top cans of fruit and vegetables
• Protein pouches or pull-top cans of tuna, beef stew, chili and chicken
• Snacks such as granola bars, breakfast bars, etc.
• Peanut butter
• Cleaning supplies such as mops, buckets, brooms, bleach, garbage bags and bug spray
• Toiletries
• Paper goods
• Diapers

“The Houston Food Bank will be serving those affected by Harvey for months to come,” said David Bleazard, President and CEO of First Service Credit Union. “Our goal is to help fill the food bank, so none of our friends and neighbors in the area will have to worry about going without a meal as they work to rebuild their homes and lives.”

Anyone needing food assistance can visit one of the more than 200 disaster food distribution centers or call the Houston Food Bank Helpline at 832-369-9390. Visit http://www.houstonfoodbank.org/media/178072/HFB%20disaster%20list%209-28-17.pdf for a list of food distribution centers.
