GFWC receives grant

The Brookshire Brothers Charitable Foundation celebrated its grant recipients at a check presentation ceremony on Wednesday, Jan. 31.

The Brookshire Brothers Charitable Foundation (BBCF), a 501c3 organization that supports the mission and vision of Brookshire Brothers, Inc., distributed $133,000 to 52 highly deserving nonprofit organizations and educational foundations across the states of Texas and Louisiana. Twenty-two of those nonprofits were first-time recipients of the BBCF grant.

For more than 100 years, Brookshire Brothers has made charitable contributions to aid in the fight against food insecurity and in support of programs and initiatives focused on education and the health and wellbeing of the communities it serves. In addition to regular donations made by the corporation, the BBCF furthers the company’s mission by assisting additional agencies on a larger scale each year. Funded by Brookshire Brothers’ generous vendor partners, the charitable foundation has given away more than two million dollars over the past two decades.

“Our board of directors is truly inspired by everything these organizations are able to accomplish, and we are honored to provide resources to help them further all the good they do,” said Brookshire Brothers Charitable Foundation Board Chairman Sally Alvis.

The nonprofit organizations and educational foundations who received grants from the BBCF this year included:
