Our organization, IRRA, Inc. is conducting our annual Thanksgiving Food Basket fundraiser.  IRRA has given out Thanksgiving food baskets that consist of a Turkey, Canned Corn, Canned Green Beans, Cranberries, Rolls, Stuffing, and Mash Potatoes to the community. 

The qualifications to receive a food basket are families must have a household of five members and must meet state poverty level income. 

Last year, IRRA distributed 500 turkey baskets throughout the Rio Grande Valley, which benefited 2,500 family members.

The 27th Annual Food Basket is scheduled on Monday, November 21, 2011.

Through our programs ACADEMICS, SOCIAL/HEALTH, CAREER, AND COMMUNITY we have seen many lives change for the better.  With the help of your support we will continue to see improvement in our community.

Each year IRRA continues to advance its mission, to empower individuals to become competent, confident, productive, and responsible citizens who will possess the competencies, skills, and attitudes to succeed in higher education and the workforce for the twenty-first century.
