HAM-up Update: Postponed Due to Hurricane Ike
September 11, 2008 § 2 Comments
If you haven’t heard the news, there’s a hurricane coming to Texas this weekend.
The Food Bank is now in full disaster relief mode to aid those affected by Hurricane Ike.
The “HAM-up Tweet-Up” scheduled for Saturday, the Food Drive bike ride, plus all volunteer shifts have been postponed.
We will still have the HAM-up Grill up this evening at Whole Foods downtown. Please join us.
We believe this is the best decision for everyone’s safety and the allocation of resources.
Donations will still be accepted at the Food Bank through Sunday to collect specific emergency items for Hurricane Ike relief.
Five items requested:
1) bottled water
2) granola bars
3) canned meats (pop-top lids)
4) peanut butter
Bring donations to the Capital Area Food Bank, 8201 South Congress Avenue (between William Cannon & Slaughter Lane).
If you cannot donate items in person, please donate online and specify the donation go to Hurricane Ike relief.
If you, or someone you know needs emergency food assistance, please visit our Hurricane Ike “I need help” page. We will continue to update this page throughout the coming days as we work with agencies in Central Texas.
Thank you and stay safe.
