Thank you, @sophiabush for visiting our facility and shedding some light on all our recovery efforts in Houston. #Repost @sophiabush
My #wcw is the badass, inspiring, and dedicated Kim from @houstonfoodbank, and my sister @nialauryn who was game to spend Sunday volunteering there with me!
Y'all. Real talk. The work being done by Kim and everyone else at the Houston Food Bank will bring you to your knees in humility and gratitude. They are still in crisis management mode. STILL. They are working round the clock shifts, 7 days a week, to take care of Houston in the aftermath of the hurricane. They are providing tens of thousands of hungry kids with meals to get them through the weekends so that they can learn and grow. They are taking care of seniors in the community and making sure they don't go hungry. They are offering food assistance to community members who have jobs, but are still struggling, so that instead of having to get a second job to pay for groceries, those folks can go to night school and elevate themselves up to the next level in life. Y'ALL!! These people are the angels among us. Truly.
Please consider donating to @houstonfoodbank, or getting involved with the local food bank in your community. This is how we grow together. This is how we create unity and show that we will not be divided. This is how we love our neighbors. I am STILL feeling uplifted from our day of learning, and sorting, on Sunday. And seriously, anyone out there with #OCD like me!? THE FOOD BANK IS A DREAM JOB FOR PEOPLE LIKE US!! All those wacky organizing skills have a CALLING!! I'll be back asap! #Community #Neighbors #FoodBank #HoustonFoodBank
After Hurricane Harvey, time was of the essence to get food and supplies out to the Houston community. We would not have been able to work as efficiently as needed if not for our super productive stretch wrap machines donated to us by The Dow Chemical Company. By helping the Food Bank better wrap large pallets, we can work faster and safer, as well as, minimize damage done to product during wrapping and shipping.
To assist those impacted by the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, native Houstonian and current NFL free agent, Josh Huff, and Houston Texans starting defensive tackle, DJ Reader, teamed-up with our Teachers Aid program to provide backpacks and school supplies to some of the most displaced students of the Aldine Independent School District. @mattel @verizondigital @texanscare .
We had a full house on Saturday with Mayor @sylvesterturner assisting in all the backpack buddy sack builds. He, along with Mayor Bryan Barnett (Rochester Hills, MI), Mayor Steve Benjamin (Columbia, SC) attended the #HiveSociety #HoustonCares event. .

We know the @harlemglobetrotters are full of tricks, but they are also full of heart. Today, we welcomed Globetrotters Flip and Moose to the Food Bank where they created disaster boxes for the Houston community and thanked our many volunteers for donating their time. #volunteer #globetrotters #basketball
It takes many hands and kind hearts to unload a donation. Thanks for capturing this moment. #Repost @stacey_tickner_hair (@get_repost)
Don't blink... Can you spot your donation? It is now on the way to being in the hands of the ones you donated to. We felt confident in choosing Houston Food Bank as the recipient of the donations and after touring their facility we have no doubt we made the right decision. #sacramentoproud #sachelphouston @houstonfoodbank #hurricaneharvey @realdavebuckner @stacey_tickner_hair @pete.da.greek @alinweto @tlspcy @im_blake_rawr101
