On August 20th, a2b Fulfillment sponsored The Second Harvest Food Distribution in Greensboro, Ga. Held every third Saturday of the month at Greene County High School, the event distributes food to needy families within Greene County, Georgia. Several a2b employees donated their time to assist in last Saturday’s effort, which distributed over 8,500 pounds of dry groceries (boxes and cans) plus over 5,000 pounds of fresh produce to 237 families representing 633 people.

“All in all, it was a great day,” says Dave Davidson, Treasurer for Second Harvest, Inc. “We’re thankful a2b Fulfillment had such a large part in both sponsoring and volunteering for this August event.”

a2b Fulfillment has long been a supporter of the Second Harvest program with several employees donating their time each month to help the cause. The 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 local Ritz-Carlton Hotel and Publix Super Market, and through an accredited partnership with Golden Harvest, a food distribution agency of the Feeding America program.

“Second Harvest is a logistics operation in that you are using all available resources to gather and inventory food and then distribute it to a group in need,” explains a2b Fulfillment President, Ayal Latz. “It’s great to leverage our talents to fill a need within this community and we’re proud of our employees for taking their time to volunteer for Second Harvest.”
