Food Drive to Benefit Furloughed Federal Workers and Their Families

Newly elected (R) Congressman Dan Crenshaw entered his position in congress just a few days before President Donald Trump decided to shutdown the government.

Crenshaw stated that he was going to refuse his salary until federal workers received their paychecks.

In an additional effort to help those particular citizens and their families during this time, Crenshaw paired up with The Humble Area Assistance Ministries along with Second Baptist Church and decided it would be beneficial to have a food drive.

Staff says they were fortunate enough to collect about $6,000 in gift cards before the event and are still taking donations.
