We care about our communities and are committed to doing what we can to lessen the impact of COVID-19 and slow the spread.”
The donation will be distributed to the East Texas Food Bank, Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana, FoodNet Food Bank (Louisiana), Northeast Louisiana Foodbank, and Harvest Regional Food Bank (Texarkana) over the next two years.
