The El Paso Independent School District launched EPISD Cares in April to help El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank (EPFH Food Bank) in their efforts to feed families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.
"EPISD is distributing 32,000 meals per week at 50 sites throughout the District in order to meet the dietary needs of children during school closures, but our teachers and staff expressed a desire to do even more," said Superintendent Juan E. Cabrera. "EPISD Cares was born from that commitment to service, which has been a cornerstone of this District for more than 130 years."
All monetary donations made through the EPISD Cares Fund will go toward providing meals to El Paso families during this pandemic. The EPFH Food Bank has distributed close to 80,000 boxes of food to nearly 23,000 families in El Paso since the COVID-19 pandemic began impacting the community.
Donations will also support the challenge grant established by Hunt Family Foundation, Paul L. Foster Family Foundation and MountainStar Sports Group Foundation who have agreed to match all donations made to El Pasoans Fighting Hunger up to $1 million.
No donation is too small, and all gifts add up to make a BIG impact.
Tangible personal property. Examples may be real estate, oil, gas, or mineral interests.
Bequests, appreciated securities, life insurance, retirement plans, and charitable remainder trusts, and more.
