Donate Food To The Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive For Locals In Need
The El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank is having their biggest single-day food drive of the year with the Stamp Out Hunger event. See how you can help this cause.
The El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank is a local 501(c)(3) organization that works to fight the hunger crisis in the Borderland. The group gathers donations and distributes the nutritious food throughout the community with the help of community partners. This group believes that no one should go hungry in our region and they work everyday to make sure no one does.
The Stamp Out Hunger food drive is the biggest one-day food drive in the nation and the El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank is working to make it the most successful year they've had.
Here's how you can help!
