NARFE Raises Funds for Local Charities

NARFE is joining other federal agencies in South Texas for the annual summer “Feds Feed Families” food drive for the San Antonio Food Bank Serving Southwest Texas.  Our goal is $1,000.  Each $1 donation equals ten pounds of food or seven meals for hungry families.  The drive started June 1st and run through August 19th.  Chapter 1594 will be collecting food and money for the next few months.
