EF&W & Second Harvest Food Bank food drive! (Madison)
Emergency Fire and Water Restoration, in partnership with the Second Harvest Food Bank of Southern WI, is proud to announce that will we be hosting a food drive this upcoming holiday season. Second Harvest is Madison’s Free and Local food bank. They will deliver our food drive donations to those who need it most in our community. Second Harvest will stock local pantries, soup kitchens and homeless shelters where families can get the food they need during tough times.
As we look ahead to the holiday season, we are mindful that there are those who are much less fortunate than we are. In keeping with that, our company has decided to hold a food drive, and we invite you to participate. In order to make things interesting, we are also going to have a competition as incentive to collect as much food as we can. The insurance agency that donates the most items of food will win a Kurieg along with all the “Fixin’s” and some donuts to break in your new office team member.
From November 12th through December 13th, please invite your friends, family, co-workers and clients in to your place of business to drop off nonperishable unopened food items, such as canned goods, to your agency. Emergency Fire and Water Restoration will provide collection boxes and signage for you to promote this event at your business. This could be an excellent opportunityfor you to reach out to your clients to get them through your doors!(For instance, you could offer a free, no obligation policy review for bringing in a food item to support the Hunger Task Force of Milwaukee).
Should you be interested in participating in this event, please contact me using the information listed below. I will bring collection boxes and signage to your business, and will periodically stop in to pick up/count food items throughout the duration of our drive. With your help, Second Harvestcan continue to:
- Meet over One Million requests per year
- Operate 27 mobile pantries in 14 SW WI counties.
- Deliver over 5million pounds of food each year to local pantries, soup kitchens and -homeless shelters.
Thank you in advance for your generosity. I am certain that the people who receive our donations will be extremely grateful.
