Brookshire Bros.’ Together We Can Do More program open
Brookshire Brothers grocery store is joining with its customers to get food to those who’ve lost jobs, income and their very health due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The Lufkin based grocer knows that ‘Together We Can Do More’ to help our neighbors facing food insecurity.
Brookshire Brothers shoppers can now donate $1, $3, or $5 during checkout to help local food pantries assist those in need. Brookshire Brothers will match every dollar its customers donate up to $100,000. The money customers give in each Brookshire Brothers or David’s store, as well as the company’s matching funds, will be distributed in that town to nonprofits or food pantries that do hunger relief. With school out, tens of thousands of children miss meals daily due to lack of resources.
Families that were already struggling, as well as thousands recently affected by job loss or furloughs, are finding it even more difficult to put food on the table. Local food pantries help respond to those immediate needs.
Together Brookshire Brothers and its shoppers can lend a hand for hunger relief. It’s part of the employee-owned company’s purpose of “being good people selling good food and doing good deeds where we live and work!”
