The food distribution push continues for Hearts and Hands of Baytown as more are scheduled in the upcoming weeks – along with others – in the area.

“Efforts continue to get fresh produce and staples into the hands of those beautiful families who patiently wait as we prepare to load the vehicles,” Hearts and Hands of Baytown Executive Director Nikki Rincon said.

Rincon said there is a “big need” for volunteers and she hopes more of them can derive joy from packing “fruits and vegetables knowing they are going on someone’s table that may not otherwise have the bounty to share with their family.” 

To volunteer, visit the United Way of Greater Baytown and Chambers County website and click on the Volunteer button. For more information contact Traci Dillard from the UWGBACC at
