The Giving Field

The Southeast Texas Oilers youth football team volunteered at the Giving Field on Liberty Street in Beaumont on March 15.

Twelve team members as well as several board members, coaches, and parents harvested 14 pounds of kale, which is enough to feed 56 people in need, Giving Field founder Sharon Begnaud explained to the volunteers.

The team also gathered eggs from the coop and planted beans.

For many, the holiday season is also the giving season, but not everyone can afford to donate dollars during this time of year. For area residents who want to give back to the community but cannot do so by giving money, there is another way. At the Giving Field, all it takes to give is a willingness to help and a strong back.
