December 14, 2017– Cross Texas Transmission has made a $2,000 gift to support the East Texas Food Bank’s Senior Box Program throughout Leon County. These funds will provide an additional Holiday Food Box for seniors already enrolled in the East Texas Food Bank’s Senior Box Program. The East Texas Food and representatives from Cross Texas Transmission distributed the Holiday Food Boxes to approximately 35 seniors at the distribution site in Buffalo, Texas this morning.

“We were honored to continue our partnership with the East Texas Food Bank in ensuring no families in Leon County go hungry this holiday season. Through this donation and our support of the Senior Box Program, we can fight together to end hunger across East Texas,” said Cameron Fredkin, Senior Vice President of Cross Texas Transmission.

The Senior Box Program is designed to improve the health and nutrition of senior citizens. In East Texas, many seniors are forced to make tough choices between paying their utilities, buying life-saving medications or purchasing food. Each month this program provides a free box of nutritious food to approximately 200 seniors in Leon County.

“We are so glad Cross Texas Transmission has partnered with us to fight hunger in Leon County,” said Dennis Cullinane, Chief Executive Officer of the East Texas Food Bank. “Their support, totaling $26,000 since 2015, has provided funds for the BackPack, Mobile Pantry, and Senior Box programs in Leon County. Purchasing these Holiday Food Boxes demonstrates their commitment to making sure seniors have access to a special meal during this holiday season.”

In Leon County, 313,000 meals were provided by the East Texas Food Bank in 2016, an increase of over 91,000 meals from last year!
