EAST TEXAS–UT Health East Texas is conducting a virtual food drive benefiting the East Texas Food Bank.
“The food bank serves all of the same communities as our hospital system and this is a great way for us to give back to the communities we serve,” said President and CEO of UT Health East Texas Moody Chisholm. “COVID-19 has affected everyone in our community in some way – many financially. In spite of this, throughout the COVID-19 crisis, our caregivers have been the recipients of countless acts of love, generosity and support from the communities we serve and this is a way for us to pay that forward.”
The goal is to raise $15,000 through caregiver donations during the month of October. Every $1 raised provides up to eight meals.
“Every gift – large or small – can have a tremendous impact on families in need,” Chisholm said. “By meeting our goal, we have the potential to provide 120,000 meals to families across East Texas.”
