Operation H.O.P.E. will be offering food to furloughed workers in El Paso, TX this weekend.

The food giveaway comes on the heels of the partial government shutdown that is now closely entering its sixth week without pay for these families that are struggling to make ends meet.

Operation H.O.P.E. along with County Commissioner Carl Robinson, EPCSO and many other local community partners are teaming up to help furloughed federal employees by offering free food this weekend. The event will take place at the El Paso Sherriff’s Office beginning at 10 a.m. this Saturday morning.

Food will be provided to all federal employees who show proper I.D. until supplies last and are asked to bring their own shopping bags to help carry items out.

If you are interested in donating to the cause, folks are asked to visit Operation H.O.P.E.’s Facebook page HERE.

Federal employees can also take advantage of the Federal Employee Food Drive taking place on Saturday at Sunland Park City Hall beginning at 10 a.m. - find complete details HERE.
