Denison, Texas - On November 6, 2018, the Ruiz Foods National Account sales team will be visiting Dallas, Texas for their annual meeting. The 13 members of the National Account sales team will also include a visit to the Denison plant and, as a way to give back to the community, will be volunteering their time at Grand Central Station. This is the first time the National Accounts team will be coming together from different geographical areas of the United States for the specific reason of giving back to the Denison area community.

They will be at Grand Central Station Warehouse – 215 W. Laurel Street Sherman, TX from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.

“We are excited for the opportunity to get to know the Denison community a little better. We thought what better way than to give back by helping at Grand Central Station,” said VP of National Accounts, Kevin Murphy.

Grand Central Station serves the needs of the homeless and indigent population in Sherman, Denison and greater Texoma through the various programs they offer. The Ruiz Foods Team Members volunteering their time will be working with three of those programs; Children’s Express … where they will be packing backpacks with food for children, The Green House … where they will be helping to repackage food items into small bags, and Grand Central Station Soup Kitchen … where they will be painting doors, door frames, and window frames.

“Grand Central Station is thrilled to have Ruiz Foods come help us pack some food bags at the Green House for the underserved families in our community along with some much needed painting at the Dining Car.  The Green House serves individuals and families with food and clothing and the Dining Car is more than a soup kitchen to our neighbors…it’s also warm or cool safe place to gather and take a shower and wash their clothes.  Ruiz Foods hs been great a partner with us and we deeply appreciate their work and love for their community,” said Chair of the Board of Directors for Grand Central Station, Leigh Ann Sims.
