Back to School Block Party

In August 2018, the Cactus team hosted a Back to School Block Party at the Moore County Court House in Dumas, TX. During the event, Cactus team members were fortunate enough to work with many other organizations and churches in the community to fill nearly 500 backpacks full of school supplies for children in the community. Every child that attended the event went home with a bag of school supplies for their specific grade in the upcoming school year. Additionally, for the first 90 minutes of the block party, the Cactus beef team gave away 500 hamburgers, with partner Liberty Foods helping to grill the patties and provide all the other items needed for the hamburgers. To top off the fun, the Moore County Sheriff’s Department and Dumas Fire Department were also present at the event to allow the kids to sit inside their fire trucks and police cars, turn on the sirens and take pictures with them as well. This block party was the first of its kind in the Moore County area and will likely become an annual occurrence hosted by JBS USA Cactus.
