Over the years, Ahern & Associates and their friends in the trucking industry have raised over 1 million dollars for St. Mary’s Food Bank
Phoenix, Arizona (PRWEB) November 25, 2013
This year, with Thanksgiving and Christmas fast approaching, almost 50 million Americans are suffering from food insecurity meaning that they are uncertain if they will be able to pay not just for a hearty Thanksgiving dinner, but for any food at all. At a time of year where most children in America are wondering what presents will be under the tree on December 25th there are 16 million who are unsure if they will have enough to eat, let alone a present. With thousands left homeless and bereft of their livelihoods in Illinois and across the tornado ravaged Midwest this is a problem that is not going anywhere and is the stark truth in America, the world’s greatest economy.
St Mary’s Food Bank Alliance is the largest domestic food bank in America, working tirelessly alongside emergency services and other charities to help those in need. In the hands of St. Mary’s Food Bank, a single dollar is transformed into meals for 7 people in need, with 95% of all donations made to St. Mary’s going directly to the tables of those in need across America.
Ahern & Associates Ltd, the leading name in trucking and logistics consulting have had a long standing relationship with St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance and every year raises tens of thousands of dollars in support of their very needful work. Over the years, Ahern & Associates and their friends in the trucking industry have raised over 1 million dollars for St. Mary’s Food Bank, and have received special recognition for their efforts by St. Mary’s president and CEO Beverly Damore. Like Ahern & Associates, the hunger relief group is based in Arizona but provides help and support to thousands of families and individuals all across the United States.
With the end of the year drawing in, CEO Andy Ahern has announced the launch of his 15th consecutive Christmas donation drive and despite the economic uncertainty still racking America he has stated his determination to raise a record amount this year. He will be sending out his call for action to the industry not only through his extensive network of trucking industry contacts but also through his weekly business newsletter, The Ahern Advisory, which is read by almost half a million people worldwide.
