In the United States, one in seven people struggles with hunger, and many rely on food from local food banks to help feed their families. The holiday season is an especially difficult time, with many not knowing when they will get their next meal. That’s why United Site Services initiated the United Gives Back Campaign for FeedingAmerica.org.
Prior to the Thanksgiving holiday, each of our branches sponsored their own food drive to donate to regional area food banks. As an added incentive, USS donated $1 for every pound collected by the branches up to a maximum of $1,000 for each region. Employees joined together, like the team in Mansfield, TX who donated their Thanksgiving Day gift cards from the Company, to collect food for their communities.
We are proud to announce that our branches exceeded our expectations by collecting a total of 11,535 lbs. of food which allowed the company to make a matching donation of $6,941.00 to FeedingAmerica.org.
Congratulations, to our top five branches with the most food donations:
- Austin, TX 1,168 lbs.
- Old Bridge, NJ 750 lbs.
- Mansfield, TX 737 lbs.
- Raleigh, NC 611 lbs.
- Seattle, WA 492 lbs.
Together we are working as a team to make a difference during this special time of year.
As One United we can help fight hunger!
