Video+Stoy: EPISD Cares campaign funds meals for families impacted by pandemic

Wednesday morning, officials with the El Paso Independent School District announced the launch EPISD Cares, a fundraising campaign to help El Pasoans Fighting Hunger Food Bank in their efforts to feed families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

“EPISD is distributing 32,000 meals per week at 50 sites throughout the District in order to meet the dietary needs of children during school closures, but our teachers and staff expressed a desire to do even more,” said Superintendent Juan E. Cabrera.

“EPISD Cares was born from that commitment to service, which has been the cornerstone of this District for more than a century.”

All monetary donations made through the EPISD Cares Fund will go toward providing meals to El Paso families during the pandemic.

EPISD Cares is a fund from the Paso Del Norte Community Foundation, and donations can be made by accessing the fund site here.

The food bank has distributed close to 80,000 boxes of food to nearly 23,000 families in El Paso since the COVID-19 pandemic began impacting the Border.

Donations made to EPISD Cares will be matched dollar for dollar up to $1 million by the fund created through the partnership of the Paul L. Foster Family Foundation, the Woody & Gayle Hunt Family Foundation and the MountainStar Sports Group Foundation.
