Abacus Plumbing & Air Conditioning is proud to support the efforts of the Houston Food Bank as part of our “You Can Count On Us to Care” program, committed to supporting local charities.

Team abacus at first houston food bank volunteer dayOn Saturday, June 21, some employees with families and friends, including CEO Alan O’Neil volunteered for the 8a-12noon shift.

Alan O’Neill said,

“It was an honor to be part of the “Abacus Caring Team” to volunteer at the Houston food bank this past Saturday. In four hours we packed enough food to help 875 Seniors. Houston has been very good to Abacus over the years, and it is our pleasure and privilege as a company to give back to the community in any way possible. We chose the Houston Food bank, because without the volunteers that help day in day out they would never be able to achieve their goal of helping as many people as possible. The Houston food bank is the largest food bank in the nation and I’m very proud that the wonderful Abacus employees and their families that came out last Saturday were able to help this amazing organization.”

Volunteers and Donations to the Houston Food Bank help feed 137,000 hungry neighbors each week in Southeast Texas.

1 in 5 kids, and 1 in 8 hungry neighbors, currently face hunger. We hope you’ll join Abacus to help change that.
