ETMC Olympic Center canned food drive benefits East Texas Food Bank

October 30, 2017

To help fight hunger in East Texas this holiday season, the East Texas Medical Center Olympic Center is partnering with the East Texas Food Bank for a canned food drive Nov. 1-30.

“Roughly 473,000 adults, children and seniors are at risk for hunger in East Texas, “said Jeramie Hinojosa, director of the ETMC Olympic Center. “Keeping East Texans healthy and fit is part of our mission, so we are excited to partner with the food bank for this important drive.”

Donation barrels will be located at most ETMC Olympic Centers throughout East Teas during the month of November. Drop off your canned goods at ETMC Olympic Centers in Tyler, Cedar Creek Lake, Chandler, Hide-A-Way Lake, Jacksonville, Lake Palestine, Mineola, Pittsburg, and Rusk.

“Help us give the gift of good health this holiday season,” added Hinojosa. “Also, each new member who joins in November, and donates 15 or more canned food items, will receive their first full month of membership free.”
