July 1, 2020 - Mesquite, TX - The City of Mesquite’s Finance Department employees decided to take the City’s annual Spread the Love campaign to feed kids during the summer with PBJ sandwiches to new heights by donating all kinds of non-perishable foods and money to help the local food pantries in Mesquite during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Debbie Mol, Director of Finance, said, “Our employees are very giving people. For the past few years we have enjoyed spirited competition to raise jars of PB&J for the Spread the Love campaign. But like most things happening today in regards to the COVID-19 pandemic, we adjusted our efforts and decided to raise all kinds of food for families in our community. Some of our staff even donated money. This is another example of our employee’s commitment to the Mesquite community.” Mol shared that the donations will be shared equally with Mesquite Social Services and Sharing Life Community Outreach.
The donations were presented to the food pantries at Mesquite City Hall. Debbie Screws, who represented Mesquite Social Services, and Jacob Taylor with Sharing Life Community Outreach attended the brief donation activity. Both commented on how grateful their organizations are for the donations.
