Brookshire Brothers Raises Money To Help Feed Those In Need

Brookshire Brothers

Lufkin, Texas-based Brookshire Brothers and its shoppers have come together to fight food insecurity. On May 14, Brookshire Brothers launched an initiative to raise money to provide food to those who’ve lost jobs, income and their health due to COVID-19.

During this time of giving, Brookshire Brothers shoppers were given the opportunity to donate $1, $3 or $5 during checkout. For every customer donation, Brookshire Brothers matched it dollar for dollar. That added up to $100,000.

The money customers donated in each Brookshire Brothers or David’s store, as well as the company’s funds, are being distributed locally to the following nonprofits or food pantries that assist with feeding people in need.
