Brazos Valley Food Bank

The Brazos Valley Food Bank allows us to come in a few Friday's each semester to sort food, pack lunch sacks for kids, and dinner boxes for families in the community. Spots to volunteer at the food bank are limited. If you sign up and can no longer make it, make sure you take your name off the Google doc so someone else can participate. BSA will send out a Google doc to sign up for the Food Bank closer to the scheduled dates! The address for the food bank is: 1501 Independence Ave, Bryan, TX 77803

The dates are: February 10th, March 10th, April 7th

BSA will be volunteering at the Bryan Animal as a group on a few Saturdays this semester! Volunteering can also still be done on an individual basis.

The dates for group volunteering are: February 11th, March 3rd, April 14th.

Canned Food Collection

BSA will be collecting cans for the Brazos Valley Food Bank in the BIMS office. 3 cans = 1 hour of community service (Max 9 cans = 3 hours). Cans should be bagged, not loose. Insert a slip of paper into the bag with your name, club branch, and number of cans. No staples please, as they rip the bags. The deadline for turning in cans will be April 12th at 5pm in the BIMS office.
