With all the disasters families have faced this year, Brookshire Brothers and it's shoppers have come together to fight food insecurity. Brookshire Brothers launched an initiative to raise money to provide food for those who have lost jobs, income, and their health due to COVID-19. The Lufkin, Texas-based grocer knows that between generous customers and the employee-owned company "Together We Can Do More."
During this time of giving, Brookshire Brothers shoppers were given the opportunity to donate $1, $3, or $5 during checkout. For every customer donation, Brookshire Brothers matched the donation dollar for dollar. That added up to $100,000. The money customers donated in each Brookshire Brothers store, as well as the company's funds are being distributed locally to the following non-profits or food pantries who assist with feeding those in need. In Sabine County funds were donated to the Rainbow Room, Salvation Army, and East Sabine Nutrition Center. Together, Brookshire Brothers and its shoppers are lending a hand for hunger relief. It's part of the employee-owned company's mission of being Good People seeing Good Food, and doing Good Deeds, where we live and work.
