Congressional Hopeful Vanessa Tijerina Holds Christmas Day Charity Brunch for Homeless in McAllen

PoliWatch Update: Congressional Candidate Vanessa Tijerina Hosts a Charity Brunch at IHOP for homeless community 

McALLEN, TX, Dec. 25, 2015 /CNW/ - Despite the holidays and dedicated time with family and friends Green Party 2016 congressional hopeful Vanessa Tijerina finds time to host a charity brunch at International House of Pancakes (IHOP) restaurant in McAllen on North 10th Street between 10 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. on Christmas Day and Sunday, December 27th to service the homeless and families of South Texas in need for a free meal to enjoy the holiday season.


"We cannot forget our community and the people in it", says Tijerina, an active political activist for South Texas and nurse by trade, who is now running for U.S. Congress in the 2016 elections as a candidate for the Green Party of Texas, known for humanitarian causes, opposed to the political mainstream.

Tijerina for a Greener Texas campaign director Cary Lee Peterson says "I would love to do more in South Texas. Help is needed here and I think this election will deliver the right representative for the community."

Tijerina (37), a Hispanic-American who is a native of Raymondville, Texas working as a nurse since 1999, and has spent the past decade volunteering for minority, veteran, and women rights activities in Texas with the anticipation to bring awareness to medicinal marijuana, immigration laws, domestic violence, education, human trafficking, and job creation for minorities and military families in Texas. Her past works as a public servant and political activist have been mentioned in the local news. Her more recent interaction with Capitol Hill has placed her into delegations as an observer at a recent White House cyber-conference in efforts to combat discrimination against world religions.

Participants of the charity brunch events this holiday weekend can attend by arriving to IHOP in McAllen and mentioning that they are there on behalf of Tijerina for a Greener Texas or a guest of 'Vanessa Tijerina's Christmas Brunch' to receive a free meal during the duration of the event.
