Los Cucos donates over 300 meals and catering staff to support volunteers and firefighters during the HFD’s annual Toy Drive
Houston, TX (RestaurantNews.com) Los Cucos Mexican Restaurant donates over three hundred meals and catering services to the Houston Fire Department’s (HFD) annual toy drive, Operation Stocking Stuffer, on Saturday, December 21st. Los Cucos’ annual commitment to participate in this event is a way for their team to spread joy to HFD staff and volunteers who impact upwards of 30,000 children on Christmas every year.
Operation Stocking Stuffer is an annual toy drive hosted in downtown Houston by the Houston Fire Department. Each year, they collect thousands of toy donations from a variety of sponsors, who make it possible for the HFD to make a huge impact with families in the community who are struggling. This Saturday, the HFD anticipates they’ll get to help over 7,000 families have gifts under the tree for their children on Christmas. Operation Stocking Stuffer relies on the efforts of both sponsors and volunteers, who work diligently year after year to sort toys, help facilitate the toy drive on the day of the event and so much more. Some of this year’s notable sponsors include Shell, KPRC Channel 2, New Light Christian Center, KRBE, Entercom Radio, and the University of Houston.
Los Cucos and owner Sergio Cabrera Jr. are passionate about supporting the community. For the past seven years, Los Cucos has been the food sponsor for the over 300 volunteers and firefighters who make the toy drive possible. Their fajita buffet is always a hit, but it doesn’t stop there. Los Cucos also provides a fully-staffed catering team to help pass out food.
About their partnership, Houston Fire Department’s Communications Supervisor, Paul Box said, “The Cabrera Family and Los Cucos have been a great support to this event for many years. Without all of our sponsors and volunteers, this event wouldn’t even be possible.” To learn more about the Houston Fire Department’s Operation Stocking Stuffer, visit www.houstontx.gov/fire/toydrive.
