FRANE Feeds The Hungry Volunteer Day
FROZEN & REFRIGERATED ASSOCIATION OF THE NORTHEAST (FRANE) HAS OVERWHELMING RESPONSE TO THEIR 2ND ANNUAL FRANE FEEDS THE HUNGRY VOLUNTEER DAY THROUGHOUT THE NORTHEAST
Thanks to all who participated in this years event! We had close to 200 volunteers that volunteered in Boston, Western Mass, Albany, Portland Maine and CT during the month of March!
This year’s program welcomed our member companies and volunteers for a variety of different initiatives all designed to impact the fight against hunger. We enjoyed participation from each of our regions throughout the Northeast. Our volunteers covered everything from food sorting, repacking donated food items and even assisting in the launch of a brand new Food Pantry in CT. Our teams in Maine and Boston, were able to participate directly with the Back Pack programs in those area, a program that FRANE is committed to supporting throughout the Northeast. In addition, our team in Western Massachusetts was able to participate in the coordinated event tied into the annual Home Show.
All in all, this event continues to be a huge success. This year’s program more than tripled the support of last year and we anticipate the support to continue to grow. Look for additional volunteer and coordinated donation programs to emerge during the fall of 2011 and winter of 2012. And mark your calendar for our 3rd Annual FRANE Feeds The Hungry events in March 2012.
Thank you again for your continued support! Together we can make a difference in the fight to end hunger.
