(HOUSTON, TX)–Target Hunger is getting help from some Exxon Mobil employees in its mission to fight hunger in Houston’s inner city. Burglars broke into a shed and stole hundreds of dollars of equipment used to maintain a community garden in Houston’s Kashmere Gardens area. Close to two hundred volunteers turned out to replant the garden and replace the equipment. ExxonMobil’s Jace Locke talks about the company’s participation.
“We’ve decided to commit three days to helping out the garden which then just helps out our community and ExxonMobil kind of pushes that really well on its employees.”
ExxonMobil will also give Target Hunger a ten-thousand dollar grant to maintain this garden and 13-others in the city’s low income areas.
