On April 19, CravensCARES Chairperson Betty Copaus spent the day at the Houston Food Bank.  Betty spent the day on an assembly line, helping to sort & divide food for families in need.  Betty worked in a team of 30 people, and was able to make many new friends & learn all about the Food Bank in our community.
