The Adams and Reese Mobile office held a food drive through the months of April and May and delivered 50 pounds of food and more than $600 to the Prodisee Pantry on Saturday, May 10th.
The money collected will help finance the shipping of 3,250 pounds of food or purchase approximately 3,000 cans of foods.
In addition to the delivery, Adams and Reese employees toured the Spanish Fort, Alabama-based food bank to learn of the process, and employees also volunteered for the early shift to build boxes and get prepared for the deliveries.
Established in 2003, Prodisee Pantry is a faith-based no-profit community food pantry that has provided assistance to over 65,000 Baldwin County families facing hardship stemming from job loss, medical expenses, natural disasters and other crisis. Following Hurricane Katrina in August 2005, the Pantry sent out more than 16,000 emergency food boxes and other relief supplies valued at several million dollars all along the Gulf Coast.
The Prodisee Pantry is a member of the Adams and Reese employee volunteer program, HUGS (Hope, Understanding, Giving, and Support), which was founded in 1988 and has since devoted financial resources and thousands of volunteer hours to offer assistance to those in need. Every year throughout Adams and Reese’s regional footprint, employees donate time, money and supplies to more than 200 community organizations in need.
