ABC’s Exceeds Bag Hunger Food Drive Goal
ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, IL– ABC Plumbing, Heating, Cooling and Electric is pleased to announce that with the dedication from the communities we serve and dedication from our employees, we were able to collect over 2,600 pounds of food as part of our “3rd annual Bag Hunger” food drive. Overall donations exceeded our goal, to be collected and donated to local food banks.
February through March is particularly difficult for food pantries across the nation. Donations are few and far between and shelves are often bare. To help combat that, ABC ran a month-long food drive an effort to help give back to the communities we serve. The campaign started off strong, bringing in over 400 pounds of food in the first week alone. The momentum kept rolling into each week there after, collecting around 500 pounds per week .
ABC technicians were armed with green reusable bags to carry donations from the customers home to our office where we stored all the items before donation day. Our Customer Service Representatives made customers aware of the promotion when scheduling an appointment, giving them time to gather
donations before their service appointment. In turn, many customers chose to donate multiple items to help give back.
On the morning of March 27th, we loaded up one of our large box trucks and set off to deliver the food to the following five food pantries; Wheeling Township Food Bank, Palatine Township Food Bank, Self Help Pantry and Closet of Des Plaines, Avon Township Food Pantry and St. Vincent DePaul Food Pantry (Lake Zurich). In speaking wit the various organizations, the donations collected will be able to help feed over 1,500 families in need.
