ETMC Olympic Center to host food drive


East Texas Medical Center will host a food drive this holiday season throughout the month of November.

“Roughly 473,000 adults, children and seniors are at risk for hunger in East Texas,” said Jeramie Hinojosa, director of the ETMC Olympic Center. “Keeping East Texans healthy and fit is part of our mission, so we are excited to partner with the food bank for this important drive.”

Donation barrels will be located at most ETMC Olympic Centers throughout East Texas during the month of November. The public can drop off canned goods at ETMC Olympic Centers in Mineola, Tyler, Cedar Creek Lake, Chandler, Hide-A-Way Lake, Jacksonville, Lake Palestine, Pittsburg or Rusk.
