Q1 Canned Food Donation Drive Brings in More Than 1,700 lbs of Food!
Benefitting A Place to Turn, the Centre Street Food Pantry, and the Greater Boston Food Bank, the Q1 donation drive was a smashing success! Generous office and employees at BI’s 50+ buildings around Greater Boston opened their pantries and donated over a two week period in late-February.
Did you know that the early spring is an especially important time for food pantries to restock their emptying shelves? After the holiday season, during which canned food drives are especially popular office-engagement activities, by the beginning of the spring, the generosity of the holiday season is replaced with bare shelves. Through Building Impact’s ongoing work with the nonprofit sector which is focused upon feeding the hungry, we were able to mobilize our thousands of partners to bring food to the tables of those who need it most.
