Although a big Thanksgiving meal is something that many of us take for granted but, for millions of families, it's a luxury they simply can't afford. To help share their abundance, UMS Banking encouraged its employees to donate non-perishable, Thanksgiving staples, like instant potatoes, canned vegetables, gravy, stuffing, cranberry sauce, and pie filling. More than 200 lbs. of food was donated overall, which is the equivalent of 166 meals! Our friends at REAL Rock 'n' Roll Movers assisted with the food drive by picking up and delivering the donations to the Glendale Community Center.
This was the second food drive that UMS Banking held in 2019. In May, they kicked-off our partnership by organizing a CAN the President Food Drive, in which the the staff filled Jim Harris's office with 450 lbs. of food!
More than 4 million people in California are food insecure, including 1 in 6 children. Thank you to UMS Banking and REAL Rock 'n' Roll Movers for helping us fight hunger in 2019! We look forward to our partnership and many more food drives to come!
