GVTC Foundation Targets Hunger to Eclipse Million Dollar Milestone
Wednesday, February 27, 2013 • Posted February 28, 2013

The GVTC Foundation passed the one million dollar mark in giving by donating $5,000 each to eight food banks located from Boerne to Gonzales, for a total of $40,000 to fight hunger.

The Foundation was just $5,000 dollars away from its milestone and wanted to do something special to push its legacy of contributions over the top. One priority was fulfilling the Foundation’s mission to profoundly enhance the quality of life in the communities it serves.

“We wanted to make a statement about our position as charitable leader, and in working with area food banks for several years, our board members know the fight against hunger never stops,” GVTC Foundation President Paula White said. “Every day we have senior citizens, adults and families with young children that worry where they’re going to get their next meal.”

The donations include $5,000 to the Blanco Good Samaritan Food Pantry.

To announce the $40,000 food bank donations, and the million dollar milestone, the Foundation held a celebration in the GVTC Auditorium, attended by employees, GVTC board of directors and representatives from the area food banks.
