With the 2015-2016 school year, Brazosport Cares extended its reach into the Brazosport community with POWERPACKS, a weekend backpack program designed to alleviate childhood hunger by providing chronically hungry students with easy-to-prepare nutritious food. Proper nutrition is vital to growth and development. Without a backpack these children have no or meager meals from Friday lunch until Monday morning. We need your help to keep this from happening. Contact us about opportunities to volunteer or donate to this worthwhile project.
Lots of Fun & Volunteer Opportunities in 2016!
We have some great events coming up this year! And we are always looking for more ways to partner with others, utilizing our outstanding volunteer base, to eliminate hunger close to home.
COME SHARE YOUR TIME! This is a wonderful way to share joy and love with your neighbors. If you would like to volunteer, whether for an hour or a day, please reach out to us. You can call the pantry, email us, or fill out the form right here on our website.
Update on "Will Dance for Food 2015"
The 2015 "Will Dance for Food" Charity Event , held Sept 12 & 13, was a huge success. The event raised over $36,000 to support the hunger-relief programs at Brazosport Cares. So many came to help their neighbors in need. A huge thank you to our 2015 Sponsors and Bowl Artists and to our talented entertainer, Corey Neil. The Sunday Zumbathon was a fitting end to the weekend long event with a fantastic program by our local Zumba instructors who generously give of their time each year to put on a great program. Last by not least, thank you to St Mark Lutheran (Lake Jackson) for once again hosting the event and rallying community support.
Ending Hunger Starts With YOU.
Brazosport Cares is leading the fight against hunger in the Brazosport community by operating a community supported, all volunteer food pantry.
