An estimated 1,200 families can get 30 pounds of groceries on Saturday morning.
ARLINGTON, Texas – Texas Rangers may not be a good fit for the World Series, but the organization is stepping up to the big plate to help families suffering from COVID-19.
As the Dodgers and the Rays battle it out on the pitch in the World Series at Globe Life Field, families across North Texas are battling another, the choice between paying rent and putting food on the table.
“We know our family is having a hard time getting to it and getting food and having access to it,” said Karin Morris, executive director of the Texas Rangers Baseball Foundation.
The organization teamed up with Food for the Soul for a Saturday morning meal prize at Parking Lot F, very close to the action at Globe Life Field.
“We saw the World Series and knew we had fans coming from all over the country to see their teams play, but the residents of Arlington and Tarrant County and this area of North Texas have long been our supporters and we know a lot of them are sick,” said Morris.
The foundation organized a number of smaller food donation events during the COVID-19 pandemic, but seeing that the need was still great, they swung over the fence, with enough food to feed some 1,200 families.
“We are blessed to have some of the most loyal fans in the sport,” said Morris. “These families have been with us when the times were good, so we need to be with them now when times are tough.”
The organization will hand out a 30-lb. boxes full of milk, produce, and cooked meats from 8:00 am on Lot F, near AT&T Way and I-30 Saturday. Families are encouraged to come as early as possible.
