Laredo, TX (December 6, 2018) Arena Gun Club, in partnership with IBC Bank and Commerce Bank, aims to end hunger in South Texas! The latest initiative to benefit the South Texas Food Bank is the organization’s first ever shooting competition to benefit its food bank programs.
The Hunger Games Challenge is set to take place on December 15, 2018 at Laredo’s only indoor gun range, Arena Gun Club located at 6501 Arena Blvd Ste. 106A. This unique shooting competition will give the public and local community oriented businesses an opportunity to compete for prizes and take a “Hunger Hero” award, but most importantly, delivering hope this upcoming holiday season.
With a staggering poverty rate of 33% faced in our border city, the need is grand! For over 30 years the South Texas Food Bank has been at the forefront, combatting the hunger epidemic that plagues our South Texas cities. Programs such as the Adopt-A-Family program and Commodity Food Supplemental program, help alleviate hunger in many food insecure households found in the city of Laredo.
Alma Boubel, STFB Executive Director commented, “We feel beyond grateful and appreciative that Arena Gun Club took this initiative in helping our communities in need. If there is one basic need that must be met, it is the need for food. It is with great appreciation that we can call Arena Gun Club, IBC Bank, and Commerce Bank an exemplary community partners for helping us in our hunger fighting efforts.”
