EDINBURG, TX – We want to thank everyone who donated for the Edinburg Cares Food Drive from students, parents, teachers, local businesses and residents. Your donation will help feed 850 families this holiday season! Around 500 families have been identified who will be receiving donations. The remaining food items will be going to local neighborhoods and our local food pantry.

However, we still need your help! We are currently looking for volunteers to help sort the items and to distribute the donations on Monday, November 22. Volunteering is needed to put donations together in boxes in order to take out and distribute. For volunteering on the day of the distribution, volunteers will have to use personal vehicles, it is preferred if vehicles are spacious to be able to carry a good amount of items. The Parks and Recreation Department will also help volunteers find partners if needed.

If you’d like to volunteer, please call (956) 381-5631. You can also come by to the Parks and Recreation Department, located at 315 E Palm Dr, Edinburg, TX 78539, and ask for more information at the front desk.
