KBTX Food for Families

The holidays are a time when family and friends come together. As the family of KBTX prepares for the holidays, we invite you and your family to join us Wednesday, December 5th, 2018 at one of the following locations across the Brazos Valley.

-Brazos Center, 5:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
-Kimbro Center, 6:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
-Navasota Valley Electric Coop in Franklin, 6:00 am – 7:00 pm.
-St. Mary’s Parish Gym in Caldwell, 6:00a.m – 7:00pm
-Mid-South Synergy in Navasota from 6:00 a.m.-7:00 p.m.

During this event, we will broadcast live throughout the day as we work to alleviate hunger in the Brazos Valley. Shop any of your local grocery stores using the list below as a guide to help you support this incredible effort that benefits the mobile pantry operated by the Brazos Valley Food Bank and the Sonshine Outreach Center, your local non-profit organization “seeking to eliminate hunger by the distribution of food and grocery products through a network of nonprofit organization while providing education and community awareness on issues of hunger.”

Together we can make a difference!

To your family, from our family at KBTX-TV, HAPPY HOLIDAYS!
