Collecting over 600 pounds of food, water, and other supplies in only four weeks is an impressive feat. I believe that speaks to the caring and benevolent nature of our employees and the core values that ownership built our company on nearly a decade ago
Farmingdale, NY (PRWEB) November 26, 2014
Nutricap Labs wrapped up its month-long holiday season food drive benefiting Island Harvest on Monday, November 24th.
Employees from the award-winning firm smashed the company-wide goal of 350 pounds when it collected and donated an outstanding 625 pounds of canned and packaged goods. These items have since been picked up by Island Harvest and will be distributed to one or several local food pantries, soup kitchens, or other non-profit organizations that offer feeding services to Long Island families in need throughout the holiday season.
“We were proud to continue our long-standing relationship with Island Harvest this year,” said Vincent Tricarico, Chief Operations Officer of Nutricap Labs. Mr. Tricarico added, “Collecting over 600 pounds of food, water, and other supplies in only four weeks is an impressive feat. I believe that speaks to the caring and benevolent nature of our employees and the core values that ownership built our company on nearly a decade ago.”
According to its website, Island Harvest is Long Island’s largest hunger relief organization. Established in 1992 by Linda Breitstone, Island Harvest’s mission has been to end hunger and food waste on Long Island. Since that time, it has delivered 71 million pounds of food, supplementing close to 66 million meals.
In addition to Island Harvest, Nutricap Labs has a long-standing history of supporting local and national charitable organizations such as Make-A-Wish Foundation of Suffolk County, Vitamin Angels, Habitat for Humanity, and Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of America.
