What do we want? Food! When do we want it? NOW

August 9, 2017

Once again, the JSC team will unite to knock out hunger in our community through JSC Feeds Families. The center's goal this year is 55,000 pounds. Together, we can make a difference.

Donation drop boxes have been delivered to buildings on-site, the cafés, Gilruth Center, Sonny Carter Training Facility, Ellington Field and White Sands Test Facility. We encourage the entire JSC team (contractors off-site as well) to join in. Collection started July 31 and will end on Sept. 1 with a final, fun-filled stuff-the-truck event at the Gilruth Center. Also, same as last year, you may also donate pet food for those in need who own animals.

Here are the food bank's most-wanted items:
Cereal
Rice and pasta
Peanut butter
Canned fruits and veggies
Canned meat
Canned beans and soup
Nutritional shakes and drinks
Kid-friendly food like granola bars
Personal hygiene items
Household items
Paper products
Pet food
Water

JSC donations will benefit the Galveston County Food Bank.

Let your competitive spirit further benefit this great cause. We encourage you to engage in friendly competition with other orgs to see who will emerge on top. JSC Feeds Families will also include a centerwide competition with a rotating trophy awarded to the most benevolent orgs. Give and you shall receive!
