Currently in the US, 1 in 8 people struggle with hunger. In our home state of Florida, more than 3.3 million Floridians struggle to afford nutritious food.
We wanted to help! FreightCenter’s employees volunteered to host a goods drive to support our local food pantry, F.E.A.S.T, an independent group of local volunteers serving over 3,100 people in need a month. FEAST has been in the area for over 30 years. Beginning at the Palm Harbor United Methodist Church they have grown to fit the area’s needs over the years. To make it all happen, over 35 volunteers support 1 full time and 1 part time employee.
Everyone at FreightCenter came together to donate over 1,300 items. We have a great history of giving back to our community which will always be part of our company culture.
Thanks to everyone who made it a priority to give back.
