Brookshire Brothers Charitable Foundation donates $110,000 to 12 area non-profits

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - One dozen local non-profits received a donation from the Brookshire Brothers Charitable Foundation this morning.

Each of the organizations were recognized for the important work they do in the community.

Brookshire Brothers distributed $110,000 total in their distribution center.

Each of the charities are selected because they align with Brookshire Brothers values of celebrating family and community.

Dr. Guesippina Bonner, executive director of Sarah's Hope says, "This money will be used to take the children on their spring break tour and 100% of it because it's for the children. It's not for us."

"We're just very excited to be a part of the Brookshire Brothers family. Their commitment to the State Supported Living Center through the family house and the golf tournament truly has made a difference on the quality of services we provide," said director of community relations at the Lufkin State Supported Living Center, Lynn Hopper.
