Attack Poverty Mentioned in the Fort Bend Focus Magazine

Attack Poverty was mentioned on Fort Bend Focus Magazine as a part of keeping the community "Fort Bend Strong" in light of Winter Storm Uri in February of 2021.


How could we get through this? Fort Bend StrongHere’s a few examples of Fort Bend Strong I found after Uri, and there are many more. On February 22nd, coordinated by Fort Bend County in Rosenberg and Richmond, nonprofits Attack Poverty, Lucille’s 1913 (4,000 ready to eat meals), the Highway Distillery (2,000 liters of water) and HEB (fresh produce) took care of our struggling families.  Susan Jackson of Friends of North Richmond summed up the efforts. “We asked how we could come together to show our community that we love them.” Fort Bend Strong!
