Special thank you to Brookshire Brothers Charitable foundation for this generous donation

LUFKIN, TEXAS (February 8, 2023)…
For more than 100 years, Brookshire Brothers has made charitable contributions to aid in the fight against food insecurity and in support of programs and initiatives focused on education, health and wellbeing. In addition to regular donations made by the corporation, the Brookshire Brothers Charitable Foundation furthers the company’s mission by assisting additional agencies on a larger scale each year.  Funded by Brookshire Brothers’ generous vendor partners, the charitable foundation has given away more than a million dollars over the past two decades.
“The Brookshire Brothers Charitable Foundation applauds these foot soldiers in our communities. They are the ones doing the hard and necessary work in our towns, said Brookshire Brothers Charitable Foundation Board Chairman Sally Alvis. “Whether it’s feeding the homeless, stocking a food pantry, driving cancer patients to treatment or providing safe spaces for children to learn and grow, they are serving people well.  Our board of directors is truly inspired by everything they are able to accomplish. We are honored to provide some resources that will help them further the good they do.”
