Laredo, TX (December 15, 2018) - What do you get when you combine a love of shooting with a passion for fighting hunger? Why the Hunger Games, of course.
Close to one-hundred local shooting aficionados gathered at the Arena Gun Club, Laredo's only indoor shooting range, to compete for a chance to win a Hunger Hero Award and a variety of prizes in the South Texas Food Bank's first ever shooting-themed fundraiser.
The objective of this competition was to raise funds for the South Texas Food Bank's assistance programs and to raise awareness about the hunger epidemic in South Texas.
"One in seven Texas families face food insecurity," Alma Boubel, Executive Director of the South Texas Food Bank stated. "It is our goal to combat hunger by providing assistance to those in need."
The South Texas Food Bank services eight counties throughout South Texas. Thousands of families, children and elderly individuals receive assistance from the food bank's many programs each month.
