A pair of Pantexans hit the road today in an effort to help stamp out hunger in the Texas Panhandle.
Byron Logan and Randy Stokes, officers in Pantex’s Safeguards & Security Division at Pantex, ran 30 miles today from Pantex to the High Plains Food Bank’s food drive, which is being hosted at Market Street United, in an effort to gather donations for families in need during this holiday season. The two gathered donations at Pantex and picked up items along the route in the hopes of filling a Bearcat armored vehicle with food items.
Stokes and Logan were joined for portions of the route by fellow Pantexans during the run. They collected donations along the route. They were followed by a Bearcat, which is an armored vehicle used by Security Police Officers at Pantex.
Pantexans donated approximately 1,500 pounds of food and $500.
