We are so fortunate that Houston was spared from the destruction of Hurricane Laura, but Southeast Texas and Louisiana did not fare well and were hit with a Category 4 storm. Are you looking for ways to lend a helping hand to our neighbors? Here’s how you can give back and make difference for those affected by the Hurricane Laura.

Houstonians can help volunteer sort product and pack boxes at their center, located at 535 Portwall St, Houston, Texas 77029. Houston Food Bank ensures that they are taking necessary precautions to keep their volunteers safe from COVID-19. Everyone entering the building must have temperatures taken, masks are required and social distancing is practiced through the building. Sign up to volunteer online or donate here.
