When you think of Thanksgiving, food has to be one of the first things that pops in your head, right? Everyone sitting around a table, filling their plates with turkey, dressing, green bean casserole, warm rolls and too many desserts to choose. Sadly, for some people, filled plates of delicious food do not happen very often, if at all.
With your help, Long Orthodontics would like to help fill plates for families this holiday season. We are collecting food for Hays County Food Bank of Texas at our office as well as Buda Chamber of Commerce office. The most requested items for families are:
- Canned fruits such as peaches, pineapple and fruit cocktail
- Canned vegetables such as carrots and asparagus
- Canned meats such as tuna, chicken and salmon
- Macaroni and cheese, pasta and pasta sauces
- Soup and chili
- Rice and beans preferably in 1 lb bags
- Peanut butter and jelly
- Oatmeal and cereal
Please bring your items to our office located at 3310 B FM 967, Suite A-110 in Buda. Our last day to receive donations will be November 14, Thursday. We have made the donating a little more fun this year! Every item donated at Long Orthodontics, counts as one entry to win an iPad mini. The more items donated means more chances to win! We will draw for the winner on our last day of the food drive.
Dr. Long and Team are very thankful for any donations you can provide. The families we are helping will be even more appreciative being able to have full plates for their loved ones.
