To help with increased demand during the COVID-19 pandemic, Davis Days delivered a $6,000 donation to Actions Inc. of Brazoria County on Tuesday, April 28. Actions Inc. helps feed our senior population of Brazoria County, and has seen an increase from roughly 5550 homebound meals per month to nearly 3000 homebound meals per week due to COVID-19.
Most seniors are able to drive to one of the Centers that Actions has throughout the county to get a hot meal 5 days a week. During the current conditions, many seniors are unable to travel and more meals are needing to be delivered.
It costs $6 to feed 1 Senior for a week.
We appreciate the continued support from our donors and will continue to explore opportunities and partnerships throughout our community.
The Davis Days Foundation partnered with Christian Helping Hands and Tyson Foods to help donate 2,000 pounds of chicken for local families.
During a time of such uncertainty due to COVID-19 and an economic downturn, many families do not know where their next meal might come from. Many of our local food pantries and non-profit organizations are in desperate need of monetary and food donations to help meet the increasing needs of our community. Davis Days knew Christian Helping Hands was needing help to keep up with demand, and that’s when Davis Days members got on the phone to see who could help.
"It took about four hours to get to the right person at Tyson Foods,” said Lori Whistler with Davis Days Foundation. "Her name is Mary Ellen, she's very sweet and she graciously agreed to donate two thousand pounds of chicken,"
"I think it's amazing," said Josh Davis founder of Davis Days Foundation. "It takes a whole lot of people to help a community and the more our foundation has given the more we realize just how much need there is out there."
The Davis Days Foundation is on a mission to improve the lives of young children and their families in our local community. If you’re interested in donating to the Davis Days Foundation please visit https://www.davisdays.org/donate-today.html.
