Food Drive Accepting Donations

Every year local organizations, schools and volunteers come together to ensure that families in need have a joyous holiday season.

The Alvin Community College and Alvin ISD Food and Toy Drive is now under way and collecting donations on several campuses.

Civic and religious organizations along with businesses provide much-needed donations and support for the food drive. These supporters include the Alvin Church of Christ, West Side Church of Christ, Alvin ISD Communities in Schools, New Hope Church, INEOS and more.

“The partnership between Alvin Community College and Alvin ISD allows thousands of students and community members to get involved by donating food and toys, volunteering to sort and sack food and participate in Breakfast with Santa,” said ACC Digital Marketing specialist Sammi Sanders.

The drive provides food for families in need and donations are distributed at the annual Breakfast with Santa.

The annual Toys for Tots toy drive will have several drop off locations on campus.

Alvin ISD campuses also will be collecting food donations. Several tons of food were distributed to families in 2017, going to more than 443 families.

The food items most needed are canned meats, peanut butter, dried beans, pasta/macaroni and cheese, rice, canned fruits and vegetables, canned tomatoes and tomato sauces, canned stews, soup and cereal and cereal bars.

Volunteers are needed to help sort and sack the food at the ACC gym from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Nov. 29. Volunteers are needed for the event to either sort food or distribute food to the families.

Community groups, Alvin ISD and ACC school clubs and volunteers participate in the food sorting and distribution during the Breakfast with Santa event.

“When the food is delivered to ACC it is piled high on pallets. We have one day to sort the food and re-sack it to ensure that each family receives a little of everything,” Sanders said. “We always need volunteers to help with this process.”

For more information or to make a donation, contact Sanders at 281-756-3542.
