ODESSA, Texas (Big 2/Fox 24) – The West Texas Food Bank and JumBurrito fundraiser numbers are in.
This year there were 22,806 visits to JumBurrito raising $11,403 for hungry people in West Texas.
The money raised will provide more than 45,600 meals at the West Texas Food Bank.
This is the 10th year the two have partnered in this holiday fundraiser.
Jose Cuevas Jr, owner of JumBurrito says, “We are truly inspired by our customers. They have responded with great enthusiasm every year and they love that our Rewards Club not only creates value for them but also focuses on helping others in need. They can even look at their receipt and keep track of how many meals their visits have personally created for someone in need.”
“I am so grateful to those who came out and enjoyed a delicious meal from JumBurrito. The past year has been difficult, and many West Texans have cut their food budgets. We see this reflected in the increase in food the Food Bank is distributing. We are on track to distribute 7 million pounds of food this year through our 19 county area. We invite you all to come out to JumBurrito and enjoy this delicious way to support the West Texas Food Bank.” Libby Campbell, Executive Director, West Texas Food Bank.
Please join the West Texas Food Bank at JumBurrito in Midland on Thursday, December 19th at 10:30 am for a check presentation, and to thank JumBurrito for their years of continuous support.
