United Way of Orange County Announces 2023 Community Food Drive

in Events

United Way of Orange County is working to bring the community together to support those in need. Food insecurity is defined as “the state of being without reliable access to a sufficient quantity of affordable, nutritious food.” Many local food pantries are experiencing supply shortages, making it difficult for them to serve. In just one example, The Salvation Army gave out more food in the first half of this year than in all of 2022. Our neighbors are hurting, but you can help!

Please support the Community Food Drive by bringing nonperishable food items to one of our two drop-off locations on Friday, September 22, 2023 between 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

Drop-off locations: The Salvation Army (1950 MLK in Orange) OR United Christian Care Center of Vidor (293 Wilson St in Vidor).

The food drive benefits Orange County Food Pantries:

  • Bridge City/Orangefield Ministerial Alliance
  • Mission Office, First Baptist Church Orange
  • Orange Christian Services
  • The Salvation Army
  • United Christian Care Center of Vidor
