HOUSTON – Consolidated Asset Management Services (CAMS) recently held a Thanksgiving drive and donated boxes of non-perishable food items and other necessities for City Wide Club’s 43rd annual Thanksgiving Super Feast at the George R. Brown Convention Center. This year’s event fed almost 30,000 families.
CAMS is dedicated to assisting communities in need and each package distributed as part of this event provided a family of 5-6 with up to 3-7 days of food for the holiday season.
“It’s been a hard year for many in our community in the Houston area,” said Mona Johnson, CAMS Senior Vice President of EHS&R. “According to the Houston Food Bank, one in seven Texans are food insecure. That problem has only been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic. We are fortunate at CAMS to be able to give back in any way possible. Providing Houston families with meals over the holidays is a small gesture that we are grateful to be able to provide.”
Organizers of this year’s event said it was a little different than years past, where they offered both dine-in, and drive-thru grab-and-go style plates. About 3,200 turkeys were cooked for the feast, and another 15,000 were distributed at a separate drive-up location outside the convention center.
