Senator Cornyn Joins PSC for Midland Day of Service, Wants to Act on CARES
Since March, West Texas Food Bank has been closed to volunteers in order to protect their frontline employees & ensure their food products were safely distributed. Meanwhile, both COVID-19 and the downturn in the economy have resulted in a more than 240% increase in food being delivered with even more being requested. When the food bank re-opened its doors to volunteers with strict physical distancing and COVID-19 guidelines, volunteers from PSC’s Midland office were first in line to serve. Senator John Cornyn also joined the volunteer efforts on August 17. PSC has a valued client relationship and lengthy volunteer history with WTXFB.
U.S. Sen. John Cornyn visited the West Texas Food Bank in Midland on Monday for a tour and to pack senior boxes with volunteers from Parkhill, Smith and Cooper.
Cornyn had a press conference with WTFB executive director Libby Campbell, Midland Memorial Hospital President and CEO Russell Meyers and Spencer Robnett, at-large city council member, about how the CARES Act, which was passed in March, has helped Midland. The area will receive $61 million in funding, some of which has already been dedicated.
