Since March, West Texas Food Bank has been closed to volunteers in order to protect their frontline employees & ensure their food products were safely distributed. Meanwhile, both COVID-19 and the downturn in the economy have resulted in a more than 240% increase in food being delivered with even more being requested. When the food bank re-opened its doors to volunteers with strict physical distancing and COVID-19 guidelines, volunteers from Parkhill’s Midland office were first in line to serve. Senator John Cornyn also joined the volunteer efforts on August 17. Parkhill has a valued client relationship and lengthy volunteer history with WTXFB.
