Houston Food Bank Fundraiser

 

The Harris County Democratic Party is raising funds for the Houston Food Bank because they do amazing work and there is a dire need to help the food insecure during this never-ending pandemic. We are inviting everyone in the county to join us in this effort, as we honor MLK Day and the Inauguration of Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.

The fundraiser will run January 15 through January 22, 2021.

Let's start this new year by showing our generosity to residents of Harris County who are in need. Thanks for taking a moment to check it out!
