Activity Description

SERVE at Home is a way for your family to spread kindness and help our community on your own, anytime, anywhere! We want to keep Houston volunteering all week long! Let's make snack packs for ECHOS to distribute to its clients.

Help pack bags and boxes of food at the ECHOS Food Pantry. ECHOS distributes fresh vegetables, fruits, and dairy products during their weekly drive-through Food Pantry that serves more than 300+ families in our community each week. The nutritious food distributed at the Food Pantry improves the health of the ECHOS families who suffer from food insecurity.
