Lowe’s Texas Regional Distribution Center in Mount Vernon will be hosting a Thanksgiving food drive to benefit food banks in Mount Vernon, Sulphur Springs and Mount Pleasant.
“As the holiday season nears, we believe that with the generous, large team of people that we have working here, we can work together to be a part of something bigger. Specifically, we have a goal to help those who are less fortunate and in need of a good holiday meal this Thanksgiving,” noted Tracey Reed, general manager for Lowe’s Texas RDC in Mount Vernon.
Lowe’s Texas RDC employes more than 900 people in the Northeast Texas area, including Hopkins County residents. On Oct. 30, company officials spoke with teams about the planned canned food drive to help others less fortunate. The company asked its employees to go into their community and collect canned food items to help these individuals.
