The Texas County ‘Stomp Out Hunger Walk’ netted nearly $3,100 Sunday in downtown Houston.

There were 56 participants and three well-mannered dogs, organizers reported.

Donations raised by walkers and businesses in the area raised about $3,076, to be divided between the Texas County Food Pantry of Houston and the United Community Help Center of Licking.  Seven hundred families benefit from food given out each month at these pantries. 

An organizer expressed thanks to all the walkers and donors, who helped make the 23rd annual event a success.  Paul Meier of Licking was the individual walker who raised the most donations, and he won the Stinky Shoe Award, a traveling trophy.
