DALLAS (PRWEB) March 23, 2021
ITServe Alliance has contributed $25,000 to Plano-based North Texas Food Bank to help replenish necessary food supplies for area residents experiencing high levels of unemployment or reduced income due to the current pandemic. After the recent ice storm debilitated the North Texas community for more than one week, the Food Bank has seen an even greater increase in need.
“This donation could not have come at a better time,” said Courtney Bagot, Director of Individual and Corporate Giving for the North Texas Food Bank. “Many of the clients we are currently serving have never needed food assistance before this pandemic. This gift allows us to help food-insecure North Texans, as well as help all of our neighbors who are struggling to provide for themselves and their families during this uncertain time.”
This is not the first time that ITServe Alliance has supported the NTFB and their critical mission, in May 2020, ITServe Alliance donated funds to the NTFB which was used to to help feed the front line workers. “ITServe Alliance is proud to partner with and support North Texas Food Bank. We are committed to ensuring our local communities receive the much needed help, especially during these testing times,” said Raghu Chittimalla (President, ITServe Alliance)
ITServe has launched a new initiative called ITServe Alliance CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) in January 2020 and is committed to supporting the local communities where our members live in across 16 chapters (Dallas, Houston, Austin, Atlanta, Florida, North East, Philadelphia, Detroit, Columbus, Chicago, St. Louis, DMV, Los Angeles, Bay Area, Phoenix & Seattle) through our charitable programs (viz., Food Banks, Food Drives, STEM, Supporting our First Responders, etc.,)
ITServe Alliance CSR (Dallas Chapter) continues to support North Texas Food Bank in its endeavors to alleviate hunger across the North Texas region. ITServe Alliance CSR focuses on contributing to the communities it is present in by supporting our First Responders, initiating food drives, stepping in to help with rehabilitation efforts in the wake of natural disasters, providing STEM assistance to under privileged kids, etc.
About the North Texas Food Bank (NTFB) is a top-ranked nonprofit hunger-relief organization operating a state-of-the-art volunteer and distribution center in Plano, the Perot Family Campus.

But the need for hunger relief is complex and in order to meet the continued need, the NTFB is always working to increase our food distribution efforts and bridge the hunger gap for children, seniors, and families in North Texas.
