Spread the Love
Part of our mission is to “Save Lives” and we take it very seriously. Every year we participate in several charity events to try and help save the lives of others. We try to make giving one of the cornerstones of our company. We donate to local churches, scout troops and many other non-profits through out the year. This holiday season we have chose to do a peanut butter drive for our local food bank, Second Harvest.
Helping Those in Need
According to Second Harvest Food Bank, 1 in 6 people in East Tennessee lives in poverty and has difficulty meeting basic needs. Second Harvest is trying to change that statistic in 18 East Tennessee counties and WE WANT TO HELP. Second Harvest Food Bank is the East Tennessee region’s largest hunger-relief charity. The food bank secures and distributes over 16 million pounds of food and grocery products annually through a network of over 500 partnering non-profit organizations such as food pantries, soup kitchens, emergency shelters and schools.
Why Peanut Butter?
Many food banks refer to peanut butter as creamy gold and is greatly sought after by 2nd Harvest. It is highly valued, prime food product because it is packed with essential nutrients and provides a good combination of protein, carbohydrate and fats. Peanut butter also has a long shelf life and it makes giving easy and affordable.
How can I help?
- Tell your friends–make an event out of it! Announce it at your school, church, gym, neighborhood or collect it at your upcoming holiday parties.
- Collect lots of peanut butter-get your kids involved. What a great way to help teach them generosity. My kids are I walking the neighborhood with our little red wagon.
- Drop off peanut butter donations at our new West Knoxville office by December 20th;
9111 Cross Park Dr Bldg D200, Knoxville TN 37923
- Bring a jar of peanut butter to your upcoming CPR class and get $5 off
This holiday season please help us Spread the Love! No one should have to go hungry. Please exercise your heart by reaching down and lifting up those in need.
We are continuing to collect Peanut Butter at our CPR classes in Knoxville.
