Bun B is teaming up with Boost Mobile for a holiday food drive to benefit those in need in Houston. In an effort to aid against hunger, the organizers of the food drive ask that people drop off five canned goods to various Boost Mobile stores throughout Houston, and in return, will receive a free pair of tickets to Bun B’s concert at Warehouse Live on Dec. 18.
This is the second year Bun B has joined up with Boost Mobile for a holiday food drive. Last year, the benefit produced more than 7,000 cans of food to donate to the Houston Food Bank.
