Tyler Spring Food Drive
Unfortunately 1 in 4 children and 1 in 5 adults (mostly Seniors and Veterans) are “food insecure” and numbers 252,900 in 26 counties.
So Jimmy will again be living in an uninsulated POD, unshaven and unbathed to benefit the East Texas Food Bank. JJO’s Annual Spring Food Drive will be held in the Walmart parking lot on 6801 S. Broadway Tyler, TX 75703, beginning Friday, March 6, 2020, at 10:00 a.m. and continuing until at least Monday, March 16, 2020, when the weigh-in begins. Again, Jimmy will be living in an uninsulated box (POD), unshaven and unbathed, until at least 10,000 pounds (5 Tons) of non-perishable food items are raised for needy hungry East Texans.
The East Texas Food Bank is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that has provided food to over 200 partner agencies in its effort to feed children, the working poor and seniors throughout the 26 counties in East Texas.
