Since 2010, 4EG has partnered with Freestore Foodbank to help fight childhood hunger. Inspired by a cause that has become integral to our core values and mission, 4EG members volunteered their afternoon to assemble a record number of 900 food boxes in under two hours, which will be distributed to families in the Tri-state area for the Thanksgiving holiday.
For nearly 100,000 children in the Tri-state area, regular meals are an uncertainty. Freestore Foodbank, established in 1971, partners with schools to provide at-risk children with weekend food supplies through their Power Pack Program. For only $5, Freestore Foodbank is able to help a child for a weekend. For $200, a child can be supported through a full academic year.
The volunteer effort of the 4EG staff coincides with the start of Keystone Bar & Grill’s annual holiday fundraiser. Through November and December, a portion of every mac and cheese sale at The Mac Shack and all Keystone locations will be donated to Freestore Foodbank to purchase and assemble Power Packs.
This year, 4EG has set a donation goal of $5,000—one that we hope to shatter with your help!
Lift up others this holiday season. To learn how you can volunteer, or to make a direct donation to Freestore Foodbank, visit http://freestorefoodbank.org/.
