They Need our Help!

As we sit here wondering where any of the wind or rain was from Hurricane Ike, the answer continues to make world headlines.  People really need our help--perhaps like never before. Majic has teamed up with the Capital Area Food Bank and we have a huge Hurricane Relief Drive tomorrow (Wednesday 9-17) at the HEB in the Tech Ridge Shopping Center 6am to 7pm.  Here is a way you can help right now through the Food Bank.  This is all from their website:   As of 3:00 PM Sept. 15 Donations depleted. Urgent call for more donations.  As of 2:00 p.m. the Food Bank is unable to fulfill emergency boxes onsite.
