On June 16th, several a2b Fulfillment volunteers rolled up their sleeves to help with The Second Harvest Food Distribution in Greensboro, Ga. Held the third Saturday of each month, Second Harvest provides several tons of food to area families in need. In addition to providing volunteers, a2b Fulfillment was a financial sponsor for the June event that included distribution of nearly 9,000 pounds of high quality food to 155 families who represented 400 individuals.
“We want to give a big ‘thank you’ to a2b Fulfillment for their financial support as Sponsor of the Month,” says Reid Conklin, member of the Second Harvest Board. “None of what we do would be possible without our monthly sponsors.”
The Second Harvest food distribution is a signature project of the Rotary Club of Greene and Putnam Counties with a mission to eliminate hunger. Food for the program is obtained through leveraging cash donations, rescuing excess food from The Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee and Publix Super Market, and through an accredited partnership with Golden Harvest, a food distribution agency of the Feeding America program.
“I’m always impressed by Second Harvest and its loyal group of volunteers,” says a2b Fulfillment Director of Marketing, Bryce McCuin. “This is a terrific experience for our employees to come and give their time. We’re proud to be a sponsor for this event and we’re thankful to all the volunteers who help make it happen each and every month.”
