Providing 500* families with food on Thanksgiving

*Earlier we thought the number was 300, but in fact 500 families participated in this!! Thanks, Corinna!

Here at LUPE we hope you had a great Thanksgiving weekend! In partnership with the Hidalgo County Bar Association, South Texas Civil Rights Project, and Proyecto Azteca, we gave out 300 bags of food to local families this Thanksgiving. The food donations came from the Hidalgo County Bar Association as part of their annual Thanksgiving Food Drive. Enough money was also raised so that we could give out gift cards to HEB for each family. The food drive benefited families in need from many different cities including: Alamo, Alton, Denton, Donna, Ed Couich, Edinburg, Elsa, La Joya, Mercedes, Mission, Monte Alto, Palm View, Penitas, San Juan, Pharr, and Weslaco.

Community members waiting in line!

Ready to pass out the bags

Special thanks to the Hidalgo County Bar Association for the food donations and wonderful volunteers!
