Best Amarillo Charities to Help Out During the Holiday Season

Amarillo has a ton of great charities. However, you will find some who need more help during the holiday season. Here is a list of some of the best charities to help out in Amarillo for the Holidays. Please let me know if you know of any that I have left out and I'll add them to the list.



The High Plains Food Bank serves 29 counties in the Texas Panhandle. They distribute and average of 650,000 pounds of food in a month. That is a lot of food and a lot of hungry people. How can you help out the High Plains Food Bank? Donate non-perishable food items often.

Right now, as they gear up for the Thanksgiving Holiday the HPFB is taking frozen Turkey donations at their location, 815 S. Ross.

Coming up Dec. 5-10 is the Together We Can Holiday Food Drive at Market Street United on Georgia Street.

As always you can always drop off non-perishable food items here at our studios at 6214 W. 34th. We are a permanent drop off location for the HPFB.

If you would like to volunteer for the HPFB, they have several opportunities available.
