Hope. Such a powerful word that when spoken can bring such happiness, but when lost can bring such despair. Hopeless. A feeling many neighbors in your community are feeling, but don't know where to turn for help. Brookshire Brothers is looking to keep your neighborhood hopeful by answering the question, "What can I do to help?"
When originally faced with that question, Brookshire Brothers turned to Lufkin Independent School District counselors to find some of the needs of those in the community that weren't being met. It also gave Brookshire Brothers the opportunity to expand upon the brown bag program already in stores. Together, LISD and Brookshire Brothers came up with their new company wide initiative, Brown Bags of Hope.
Our customers will have the chance to literally give hope to those in need by purchasing a Brown Bag of Hope. For just $10, you're providing food, school supplies, or toiletries to the members of your community. Our stores give the bags to non-profits, schools, and veterans groups in your area to distribute. By giving our customers a way to be the helping hands of their city, we are hoping to offer support to those in need.
As easy as it is for us all to get lost in the whirlwind that is life, it is important to remember that there are those among us who are struggling day to day to make ends meet. It's in that moment that you stop moving and start doing that hope is given a chance. Stop by your local store today and give yourself a chance to feel the magical gift of delivering hope to the hopeless.
