The agency is kicking off its annual food drive! Please help to ensure no family fleeing abuse misses out on meals this holiday season by donating unexpired and non-perishable food items.

Businesses and organizations are encouraged to host internal and community-based food drives along with individual donations. Pantry staple items such as boxed mashed potatoes, stuffing, canned foods, mac and cheese, and peanut butter and jelly are greatly appreciated.

Donations can be dropped off at any of the agency’s outreach offices, located in Lufkin, Nacogdoches, Crockett and Center, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday – Friday. The food drive runs until Dec. 7.

Other Ways to Donate:

By donating your family’s gently used household items and clothing to one of our two thrift stores, you are contributing to our mission of keeping families safe and free from abuse.  All proceed from store sales cycle back into the direct victim service programs that our agency provides to victims of domestic violence or sexual assault.
