As we all prepared to celebrate the holidays with family and friends, the Montebello office gathered donations for the Food Bank of the Hudson Valley, which is dedicated to alleviating hunger while preventing the waste of wholesome food. It is a branch of the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York and a member of Feeding America, the national food bank network.
The two week drive ended up raising $715. With GPI charitable match, the office was able to celebrate the donation of $1,430 that was given to the Food Bank in time to help out for the purchase and distribution of food throughout the community before Christmas.
This effort marks the beginning of Montebello’s contribution towards achieving the company wide ’50 Acts of Kindness’ in celebration of our 50th Anniversary year. We are thankful for the success achieved as a company and look forward to additional opportunities to give back in 2016!
