On Tuesday evening, August 28, make plans to dine out at your favorite restaurant in support of Longview Community Ministries (LCM) Too Hot to Cook annual fundraiser. This event helps promote awareness of the continuing and increasing hunger issues in our community. Nancy Robbins is serving as chair of this year’s event and invites the community to eat out at one of 16 participating restaurants. Those dining out will be greeted by LCM volunteers, board of directors, and staff members. Proceeds raised during the evening will be used to purchase food for the LCM food pantry to help feed the hungry in the Longview community.
“We all have something to give and giving is living! None of us lives fully apart from others,” Mrs. Robbins said. “I feel very blessed to have so many opportunities to be touched by wonderful, giving people.”
Born in Tyler, Mrs. Robbins has been a member of the Longview community for 35 years. She graduated from Arp High School and attended Tyler Junior College. Mrs. Robbins and her husband, Ted, have been married for 35 years and have two adult children and two grandsons. Mr. and Mrs. Robbins attend New Beginnings Baptist Church.
“We love Longview and people are always so willing and eager to help,” Mrs. Robbins said. “Just let them know about the needs!”
