Islanders Athletics Helps Out at Share Your Christmas

CORPUS CHRISTI – Members of the Texas A&M – Corpus Christi Department of Athletics spent some of their Friday volunteering at KIII-TV’s Share Your Christmas Food Drive on Dec. 7. Share Your Christmas is an event that partners the Corpus Christi Food Bank, KIII and HEB to help families in need this holiday season.

“We love being able to give back to the community, and this was a great event for us to be a part of,” Director of Athletics Scott Lazenby said. “A little help can go a long way for many people in our community, especially during the holidays. We were just glad to lend a helping hand.”

Share Your Christmas is in its 25th year of existence, and this year has been projected to be a record-setting one for the event. The food drive will continue through 6 p.m. on Friday.

For those looking to help out, donation stations are set up at the KIII-TV studios on South Padre Island Drive and at three HEB locations (corner of Alameda and Robert, corner of Saratoga and Staples, corner of Port and Tarleton) in the Corpus Christi area as well as the stores in Kingsville, Alice, Robstown, Annaville and Portland. You can also donate at area HEBs at the checkout stand in denominations of $1, $3 or $5.
