Help Timberland PRO Fight Hunger With Virtual Food Drive
Categories: Boots On The Ground: Service Stories, Making Our Difference: TBL CSR
On Friday, June 24th, as part of the 2011 SkillsUSA National Leadership and Skills Conference, Timberland PRO® is hosting the 10th annual community service event in Kansas City, MO. 350 students and advisors will volunteer that day, painting outdoor murals, planting fruit and nut trees and packing up food at the Kansas City region’s only food bank, called Harvesters. Timberland PRO® is proud to continue its long-standing partnership with SkillsUSA as both organizations share a commitment to leadership, volunteerism and community service.
In conjunction with this service day, Timberland PRO® will be running an online food drive with the Harvesters Food Network. Harvesters is recognized for excellence in their use of donated resources: they use less than 3 percent of monies donated towards administration and fundraising, with the bulk being spent on food acquisition, distribution and education.
Timberland PRO® will match food drive donations up to a total of $2,000, and all donators will be entered into a raffle to win a $500 gift card.
To learn more and make a donation, please visit www.timberland.harvesters.org; the Virtual Food Drive ends June 24th.
