Tis The Season...



National American Miss Staff Tiffany Saylor and LaKishia Edwards

Yesterday the National American Miss Staff took a day off from the National Office to volunteer at the Houston Food Bank. We had a great time volunteering and giving back to our community. The Houston Food Bank is on of the leading organizations to fight hunger. It was so rewarding to make a difference. Every time I volunteer I remember that the true blessing is on the giver, not the recipient.

 The Houston Food Bank Stats:
• 70 million pounds distributed last year
• 137,000 different people fed each week
• 865,000 different people fed each year
• nearly 500 hunger relief agencies in 18 southeast Texas
   counties:
      o Church food pantries
      o Homeless shelters
      o Safe havens for the battered and abused
      o Nutrition sites for children and the elderly
• More than 259,000 volunteer hours contributed annually

                   Girls get out and make a difference ! It's fun, easy, and rewarding!

Fun Fact : Both LaKishia and Myself are former Texas Teen winners. In 2000 LaKishia crowned me at the Texas state pageant! Old Queens really do become staff and stay life long friends !
