GIVING BACK DAY OF SERVICE

Please join us for an opportunity to give back to our wonderful community. This year, the USGBC Texas West Region is partnering with El Pasoans Fighting Hunger (EPFH) to renovate two areas of their facility: 1) volunteer office space area and 2) an area to launch a client-choice pantry. The client-choice pantry will allow families in need to choose the types of food they would like to receive, instead of being given a standard, prepackaged box of food.
EPFH provides food to 90,000 food insecure people in our community, and we want to help them attract volunteers and continue to serve families in need.They will also have a nutritionist and SNAP enrollment specialist on hand to provide support to families.
Join us at El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank to assess the area and better estimate what materials will be needed (paint, new HVAC system, new flooring materials, etc.), how many volunteers will be needed, and when our next volunteer days will be needed. After this assessment, we will set up dates in October, November, and December to complete this project. If you have any type of construction, mechanical system, interior design or renovation expertise, your expertise will be so valuable. Please consider supporting this project and lending a hand to an organization that supports so many in need.
