It is time for the Annual Bramlett Beans & Cornbread Community Fundraiser hosted by former Mayor James Bramlett and the Texarkana, Texas Parks and Recreation Department.

Enjoy yummy beans and cornbread on Thursday, December 6, 2012 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Southwest Center on 7th Street in Texarkana, Texas.

Lunch is only $5 and includes beverage and dessert or bring six non-perishable food items and lunch is FREE.

“Money and food items donated at the lunch go toward food baskets for truly needy families in the Texarkana area – a coordinated effort by Texarkana Water Utilities and the Cities of Texarkana, Texas and Texarkana, Arkansas,” former Mayor Bramlett explained. “These baskets are delivered as anonymously as possible.”

Starbucks is hosting a toy drive to assist with the Bramlett Beans & Cornbread. Citizens can bring a new, unwrapped toy or book to Starbucks now through December 10, 2012.
