Sharing God’s Bounty Gary Gulledge knows that the first step in wiping out global hunger is feeding his neighbors. That’s why, for the past eight years, this department coordinator has organized a food drive at Baylor Scott & White Medical Center – White Rock. “Hunger is an issue everywhere,” Gary says. “So I try to think globally and act locally. We are one of the richest countries in the world, yet we still have too many people going to bed hungry.” The annual food drive collects, on average, 400 pounds of non-perishables. It goes to the White Rock Center of Hope, a coalition that annually provides emergency aid to 21,000 people, including many families with children. 6
