Wed. Dec 7th, 2016 – Reeds Ferry Sheds delivered just over 14,000 nonperishable food items to the St Vincent de Paul Food Pantry, part of the St. John’s Parish in Hudson NH. The St Vincent Pantry provides bags of groceries for families in need, and special packages are given to 95 area school children for their weekend meals. Pauline Boivert, of the food pantry, reports that the food donation will go a long way towards keeping the Panty stocked through the 1st quarter of 2017.
The food-drive was organized by the staff at Reeds Ferry Sheds. Veteran Reeds Installer Josh McMahon was the first to suggest the idea and the remainder of the staff joined in and formed collection teams. Soon after the simple can-drive turned into friendly competition. The team of Kara and Paul were crowned champions and recipients of the coveted “Golden Peach Can Trophy”.
Reeds Ferry Sheds® agreed to match all staff donations. The end results was a truck and trailer full of 14,000 cans, pasta, soup, noodles, cookies, and of course Mac and Cheese. (watch the delivery day video below).
Reeds Ferry Sheds® would like to thank Pauline Boivert and the staff of St Vincent Pantry, Len Lathrop and Bruce Preston of the Hudson-Litchfield News…And a big thank you to all our employees for their generosity and community spirit. Merry Christmas to all.
