Roasted turkey and freshly made cranberry relish were not the only things on the menu as 2020 Exhibits paused to give thanks and celebrate at their annual pot-luck Thanksgiving Feast.
With plans to serve up a happier Thanksgiving for those in need, 2020 Exhibits employees worked together to gather almost 200 pounds of food goods, in addition to monetary donations, for their first annual Food Drive, benefiting the Houston Food Bank. 2020 Exhibits president, Bob Babine, took a moment from the festivities to recognize the support and generosity of those around the table and said, “Your contributions over the last two weeks will make a real difference in the lives of our Houston neighbors. Families in Houston will have a meal on their table as a result of your efforts. It is an honor and pleasure to lend our support and gather donations to support Houston Food Bank’s mission.”
