Accolade Homecare and Hospice will be hosting the 3rd annual "Battle against Hunger", a fundraiser to help battle hunger in the area. The event will help our local food bank and food pantry to stock their shelves after the busy holiday season and to get them prepared for the summer months, when kids are home and the need is greater. The event will be on Friday, March 7th at the Yoakum Gin and Feed. There will be live music and admission to the event will be a non perishable food item or a cash donation. For each item or dollar donated at the door, you will receive a ticket to a chance to win one of their many door prizes.

Last year was a HUGE success! They received over $38,000 worth of food, gifts and monetary donations! This helped the estimated 250,000 individuals in the Golden Crescent area that will need the help of our local food banks. This years donations will be spread over several counties such as Victoria, Dewitt, Lavaca, Karnes and Gonzales.

They are looking for sponsors also to help with door prizes, silent auction items, and monetary donations. Any and all donations are GREATLY appreciated!!
