PrintingForLess.com Food Drive Huge Success
Print shop collects more than five pallets of food to feed hungry in local area
Livingston, MT - June 29, 2009 - Today, PrintingForLess.com (PFL), www.printingforless.com, announced the huge success of their food drive June 22-26 to assist the local, Livingston Food Pantry in collecting non-perishable food donations. Overall, PFL employees collected more than 1,900 items, or five palettes, of food for the Livingston Food Pantry.
To help motivate employees, PFL ran a team contest to see which team could collect the most food. The winning team to bring in the most food and win a pizza party was the Production Coordination/PFL-Net/IT Team. They brought in over 670 items of food with an average of 45 items per person. They used the creative approach of challenging their vendors to match funds to come out on top.
"With so many people facing tough times right now, we are happy to make a difference, starting in our local community," says Andrew Field, PFL Founder and CEO. "We'd like to give a special thanks to all of the dedicated employees at PFL who developed creative strategies and motivated their teams to donate as much food as possible."
The Livingston Food Pantry's mission is to help eliminate hunger in Livingston and Park County through the acquisition and distribution of healthful food to individuals and families in need. In light of heightened unemployment rates and several other contributing factors, the need for support is stronger than ever:
- The number of families using the Livingston Food Pantry during the first quarter of 2009 was up 67% compared to the same quarter last year. And, this trend has continued into the second quarter.
- The Livingston Food Pantry distributed more than 38,000 pounds of food during the first quarter.
"The amount of food that PFL collected will help us feed more than 50 families for one week," says Michael McCormick, executive director of the Livingston Food Pantry. "Thanks to the generous contribution of PFL's employees, we can now better provide for families in need."
