DALLAS, Nov. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Cinergy Entertainment Group announces that they will be hosting a canned food drive at their Midland, Odessa and Copperas Cove locations to benefit the following local pantries: West Texas Food Bank and Food Care Center in Killeen, TX. Cinergy hopes to collect an abundant amount of canned goods this holiday season to further the mission of these local pantries. To encourage patrons to participate, Cinergy will offer the choice of a free popcorn or a $5 game card in exchange for 2 canned food items.
"We are excited to kick off our canned food drive on November 17th in conjunction with the opening of Justice League and the Thanksgiving Holiday break," stated Traci Hoey Director of Marketing and Sales. "We want our patrons to come out, have a great time and support a worthy cause by bringing in much needed food items for our local pantries during one of their busiest seasons."
In Texas over 4 million people are struggling with hunger, of which 1.7 million are children. West Texas Food Bank is striving to combat these statistics by partnering with 65 Partner Agencies and servicing 19 counties in west Texas. Food Care Center works hard to address the community needs by distributing an average of 250,000 pounds of food each month.
"The West Texas Food Bank is excited to partner with Cinergy this Holiday. As the only spot to get delicious food while watching the newest releases, the idea of Cinergy feeding people is not a stretch. When I think of the holidays, time spent with my family is what I cherish most, whether around the table, or taking a trip at the movies. We cannot thank Cinergy enough for asking their fans to support the West Texas Food Bank. Great food drives like this allow us to continue providing four healthy meals for every dollar donated," said Libby Campbell, Executive Director, West Texas Food Bank.
The drive will take place Friday, November 17th through Thursday, November 30th, 2017. Donations can be brought to the Midland location at 1917 Liberty Drive, Midland, Texas, the Odessa location at 8250 E.
