Holiday Food Drive

Texas Health Gives at Allen Community Outreach, Allen Texas, November 2013


List of Holiday Food Items Needed 

Donations of holiday food items may be dropped off at Allen Community Outreach between now and November 10.

During the holiday months, the need for emergency assistance to families tends to increase. It is with the community support through donations and volunteer time that we make possible 1,000 Holiday bags of groceries to fight hunger during Thanksgiving and Christmas.

You can participate by donating the items listed below or by making a financial donation online.

Hold your own drive to benefit ACO’s Holiday Food Drive at your business, in your neighborhood, church, club or make it a family project. Print up flyers explaining your drive, or use our Holiday Food Shopping List below or you can print a copy by clicking on the above link.

Volunteers are needed to sort, box and distribute the food for families on November 15 – 21. Current volunteers please contact Janis Christie to be put on the volunteer schedule for this program. Call 972-727-9131 or email New Volunteers may complete an  Online Volunteer Application.
