On August 19th, a2b Fulfillment employees put their logistics experience to work for The Second Harvest Food Distribution in Greensboro, Ga. Held every third Saturday of the month, the event distributes food to needy families within Greene County, Georgia. a2b Fulfillment was sponsor for the August event that included distribution of nearly 10,000 pounds of high quality food, including 4,700 pounds of fresh produce. The event reached 221 families representing 579 people.
“Our Second Harvest group is always so very thankful for the volunteer efforts of local individuals and businesses like a2b Fulfillment,” says Dave Davidson, Treasurer for Second Harvest, Inc. “Second Harvest has no paid staff and is a one-hundred percent volunteer effort. Because of that we are able to fully maximize the funding we receive from our community.”
The Second Harvest 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 Ritz-Carlton Reynolds, Lake Oconee and Publix Super Market, and through an accredited partnership with Golden Harvest, a food distribution agency of the Feeding America program.
“I am always amazed at what a great job the Rotary Club and Second Harvest volunteers do each month with this operation,” says a2b Fulfillment President, Ayal Latz. “Our employees enjoy lending a hand each year and supporting these organizations in their mission to feed local families.”
