Ozarka® Brand 100% Natural Spring Water is helping the East Texas Food Bank kick off Giving Tuesday during the holiday season by donating a gift of $5,000 and a truckload of bottled water.
Ozarka has been contributing to the East Texas Food Bank since 2003. “We are very pleased to continue our long-standing relationship with the East Texas Food Bank,”’ said Jeff Hall, Ozarka’s factory manager in Hawkins. “Providing support to local communities in need is so important to our Hawkins factory employees and we are glad that this holiday we are again able to assist ETFB and the good work they do in our region.”
The East Texas Food Bank serves over 80,000 households in 26 counties throughout East Texas, covering nearly 20,000 miles. Giving Tuesday is a global day of giving that takes place each year on the Tuesday after Thanksgiving. Ozarka’s donation will support the one in five East Texans, including one in four children, who may not know where their next meal is coming from.
“The generous donation will provide 40,000 meals for our children, families and seniors in need. This need is especially important during the holiday season,” said East Texas Food Bank Chief Executive Officer Dennis Cullinane. “I’m thankful for our long-standing relationship with Ozarka and their continued support of our mission to fight hunger and feed hope.”
While Giving Tuesday is the global call for action, everyone is encouraged to help raise awareness about hunger in their community. For more information about Giving Tuesday and how you can participate to make a difference in the lives of hungry neighbors in need, visit EastTexasFoodBank.org.
