Every Quarter, the Texas City La Marque Jaycees send up to 3 volunteers from our organization to the Galveston County Food Bank. Blake Carroll is our Community Project Service Chairman and he assigns people to work this day.
I was one of the volunteers to work last Sat., May 5 and I was amazed at the proficiency and organization that was orchestrated at the Food Bank. It is a huge operation whose need is ongoing. There was a constant but organized flow of people who had registered and qualified for this service. The front room where the products are actually chosen and distributed is just a small part of what goes on in the back where contributions are checked in, sorted and sent out to either their own floor in the front of the building or to area seniors, schools, etc. I was very impressed at the smooth flow this took but it was also apparent that many volunteers are needed to continue this community service. TCLM Jaycees will continue to help with this to “Give back to our community”. –Dana Rogers
