Denver, Colorado (PRWEB) December 17, 2014
This week, A&P packaged and distributed over $15,000 worth of non-perishable food items, toys and monetary donations for Food Bank of the Rockies as part of an annual Holiday Giving Drive. The A&P Mountain States Region sponsored the drive and committed to matching dollar for dollar, toy for toy and can for can all donations that were brought in. Generous donations from A&P employees and industry partners helped make this year’s giving drive a huge success.
Over 300 boxes were packaged to give 300 families-in-need a box of non-perishable food items and common hygienic items. Over 50 A&P employees packaged the boxes into a semi-truck using lean methods.
“It was amazing to see everyone become passionate and fully involved in helping out,” said Tom Horsting, A&P's Regional Vice President. “We are humbled by the outpouring of donations from our subcontractors as well as our employees to make a memorable impact.”
The 2,000+ pounds of donations were delivered to Food Bank of the Rockies, who provide food for more than 411,000 people annually. The Food Bank of the Rockies is one of the largest private hunger relief organizations in the Rocky Mountain Region that contributes 96 cents of every dollar towards food distribution. Delivering the donations to the Food Bank of the Rockies’ warehouse saved the nonprofit hundreds in fuel and labor costs. The A&P Holiday Giving Drive is an annual event to support organizations that benefit the communities we live and work in around the holiday season. The A&P 2014 Holiday Giving drive was the best year yet in collecting donations.
