In the spirit of giving this Thanksgiving, The GIANT Company has announced a significant donation of 1,500 turkeys to the Helping Harvest Fresh Food Bank, as well as their commitment to provide a total of 15,000 Thanksgiving turkeys to food banks and community partners across the regions they serve in Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, and West Virginia.
In an effort to alleviate hunger and contribute to the well-being of their communities, The GIANT Company has embarked on a mission to ensure that families in need can enjoy a warm holiday meal with their loved ones this Thanksgiving season.
“Since 1923, The GIANT Company has been committed to helping its communities eliminate hunger year-round, but it’s especially important this time of the year to ensure that everyone can enjoy a warm holiday meal with their loved ones,” said John Ruane, president, The GIANT Company. “This year’s donations will deliver more than 125,000 servings of protein to families while creating moments to connect around the table.”
Additionally, The GIANT Company will also involve their team members in volunteering at the food bank. Their employees will be actively engaged in activities such as packing hunger relief boxes and organizing and restocking shelves to prepare for the busy holiday season.
David Delozier, Chief Development Officer at Helping Harvest, expressed his gratitude for The GIANT Company’s continuous support in feeding the hungry in Berks and Schuylkill counties. “We are extremely grateful for corporate partners like The GIANT Company for all they do in support of our work to feed the hungry in Berks and Schuylkill counties. Together with their generous gifts and volunteer support we are able to make a difference for thousands of children, families, and seniors in our region” he said.
The giving spirit isn’t limited to The GIANT Company alone. They are encouraging their customers to join their efforts to combat local food insecurity this November. From November 10 through November 23, customers can donate free turkey certificates at the register in-store to support a local food bank. Additionally, customers can purchase reusable bags, with the proceeds going to benefit Feeding America, a nationwide network of food banks.
