A Season of Giving
December 30, 2022
This holiday season we’ve had a great time helping to spread cheer by participating in donation drives across all our regions!
In our California and Washington, we were able to partner with Marine Corps Reserves Toys for Tots for their 75th annual holiday toy drive and donated toys for children from the ages of 1 month to 17 years old. Since 1947, Toys for Tots has been making a difference in the lives of many families across the United States. It is a program run by the US Marine Corps Reserve which distributes toys to less fortunate children.
In our Alaska region we donated over 360 pounds frozen food items, including chicken, beef, pork, fish & shrimp, fruits & vegetables, and dairy products to the Food Bank of Alaska. This nonprofit “is a busy warehouse, deploying a fleet of trucks to recover surplus food that would otherwise be disposed of by food industry partners – grocery stores, wholesalers, producers, farmers, and the fishing business.” They “then redistribute this food to pantries and meal programs – about 40 partner agencies in the greater Anchorage and Mat-Su service area – who make it available to children, families, and seniors in their neighborhoods.”
