BRYAN, Texas — A lot of people, organizations and businesses were hit hard by the insane winter weather last week. One organization that was negatively impacted was the Brazos Valley Food Bank.
First and foremost, the food bank was in dire need of water. Thankfully that problem was solved quickly. The food bank does have plenty of water as of now.
Executive Director of the Brazos Valley Food Bank Theresa Mangapora said they desperately need canned goods. Thankfully, CEO and owner of Stylecraft Doug French was ready to make a difference.
“It's with a happy heart that we're able to open with normal business hours tomorrow. More importantly, we'll be opening a food drive at our Bryan/College Station model homes to benefit the Brazos County Food,” the Facebook post said.
“Due to last week's winter storm, they're in dire need of assistance in restocking their pantries. For every item donated, Stylecraft will be doubling our donation. For a list of items needed, please visit: https://www.bvfb.org/food-donations-most-needed
