From my friend Cecilia:

“Subject: Need Your Help

As many of you know, when not producing my radio show Field & Feast, I’m working my full-time job at Texas Parks and Wildlife.

As you also know, Texas has suffered from horrifyingly destructive wildfires, some of which have devastated some of our parks and also destroyed the homes of some of our fellow employees.

Parks and Wildlife is hosting a benefit BBQ May 11 to help raise money for our “family” members who lost everything in the fires. We’re seeking food donations including 15-20 briskets, 250 links of sausage, 100 chicken leg quarters, water, tea, potato salad, beans and cole slaw…etc.

The guys in the motor pool who are organizing this have been working hard at obtaining food donations, but to no avail.

Businesses that donate can hang signage at the event.

In lieu of food donations, checks can be sent to TPW Foundation, 1901 N. Akard, Dallas, Texas  75201.  Please write TPW Employee Relief Fund in the memo line.

Thank you for your consideration.”

If you can help with food donations, please let me know.  I can make arrangements to get the food to Texas Parks.
