Two More Distribution Events to Support Imelda Affected Families – Oct. 12

On Saturday, October 12, we will be providing food supplies to two events in Beaumont designed to help those affected by Tropical Storm Imelda in their recovery efforts.

One event is the Jefferson County Long-Term Recovery Group’s Multi-Agency Resource Center (MARC) at the Beaumont Civic Center from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. We will be one of many non-profits and community organizations offering services to attendees. In addition to our food distribution, other examples of services attendees will be able to access are home cleanup assistance, rebuilding help, mental health support, and cleaning supplies. Any Jefferson County families or individuals affected by Imelda are welcome to attend, but must bring a photo ID or proof of address (for example, a utility bill).

We will also share food supplies with St. Paul African Methodist Episcopal Church for a distribution there from 1 to 3 p.m. The church is located at 3320 Waverly Street in Beaumont.

Dial 2-1-1 for free, bilingual information and referrals for food assistance and other health and human services.

The mission of the Texas WIC (Women, Infants & Children) program is to improve the health of low-income women, infants, and children up to age 5 who are at nutritional risk.
