Unidos and Partners Feed Community

 

On February 10, 2021, Unidos received a very generous donation of boxed food from the Midwest Food Bank. Over 500 food boxes were donated to the Unidos Program and the donations were made possible by Mr. Ken Fickle, the Texas Operations Manager and Executive Director Mr. David Emerson.  With a little less than a few days’ notice, Sergeant Reyes and his Unidos team set up and distributed the boxes of food before the cold weather rolled in. There were well over 100 cars lined up at the donation location to receive the generous donation of food.

“I couldn’t be prouder of the Unidos organization and our officers at the Southeast Patrol Division who helped put the donation event together in such a short period of time.” said Deputy Chief William Griffith.

Thank you, Midwest Food Bank for your generous donation. We are proud to have officers like Sergeant Reyes and his team at Unidos that never misses an opportunity to help the community.
