Lufkin non-profit adds a new building

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A long time Lufkin non-profit has a new warehouse to help them in their mission to feed the community.

The Christian Information and Service Center officially opened up their new warehouse today.

The new space gives the organization an extra 7-thousand square feet of space to use.

The facility includes a clothes pantry and food bank. There is also available space to host the Lufkin's city wide thanksgiving meal. The CISC Director and staff believe Lufkin deserves a place like this.

"we have the most generous people in this town. Even the needy are generous. It's just a way of life," said CISC Executive director Linda Smelley.

Lufkin Mayor Bob Brown and a representative for State Rep. Trent Ashby were present.

The warehouse was built with a contribution from the Temple Foundation.

The East Texas Food Bank and Brookshire Brothers also made contributions.
