Because Hunger is Scary
Overhead Door Company of St. Louis partnered with the St. Louis Area Foodbank for a food drive during October and had some AWESOME results.
The Company’s volunteerism group, called Team Impact, worked to host an internal canned food drive, collected cash donations, and even organized a collection point outside a local grocery store on a Sunday for a few hours!
They used the theme “Because hunger is scary” and tied it in with the Halloween holiday. Their work was rewarded with great generosity. Here are the details:
The food drive collected 560 pounds of food! This provides 457 meals to folks in the area who need help.
They ALSO collected nearly $650 in cash donations! The St. Louis Area Foodbank estimates that for every $1 donated, they can provide FOUR meals. That means the Company’s donation supports almost 2600 meals!
All told, the contributions reach over 3,000 meals that go to help the community, something of which to be very proud.
