AMEDDC&S Headquarters Support Company donates 400 pounds of food to needy families

By Jose Rodriguez U.S. Army Medical Center and School, Health Readiness Center of Excellence Public Affairs

The U.S. Army Medical Center and School, Health Readiness Center of Excellence Headquarters Support Company at Joint Base San Antonio-Fort Sam Houston dropped 400 pounds of food items to the San Antonio Food Bank Oct. 29 in support of the annual Feds Feed Families campaign.

Company First Sgt. Julie Morris led the annual food drive, which resulted in AMEDDC&S HRCoE collecting more than 700 pounds of items to the food bank.

"It's basic human instinct to want to help others who are in need and struggle to provide nutritional food for themselves or their families," Morris said. "I understand economic struggles so when there is an opportunity to give back to the community, the commander and I are eager to support. 

"We are so grateful to all of the HSC military and civilian personnel who supported, a true testament to the compassion of the human spirit," Morris added. "The success of the Feed the Families Food Campaign is attributed to them."

In August, the HSC collected 300 pounds for the food bank during the first half of their drive.

In accepting the donations, Adam Limon, who's been working at the SAFB for seven months, said the much-needed items will help stock their warehouse.

"I became involved with the food bank by volunteering with my church, and then I was hired on," Limon said. "The food bank makes a difference."
