‘Tis the Season of Giving
For many, the Holidays are a time for helping those in need. Although people are in need throughout the year, there is something about the Holiday Season that inspires generosity above and beyond the usual.
For the past two years, 5-hour ENERGY® has supported the Gleaners Community Food Bank of Southeastern Michigan. This year the 5-hour ENERGY® team helped drive out hunger by filling the Gleaners truck with over 2,000 lbs of food.
For more than 35 years, Gleaners Food Bank has provided millions of pounds of donated and purchased food to those in need. For every dollar donated, Gleaners uses 94 cents to purchase food which has helped provide roughly 97,344 meals per day to those who otherwise cannot afford it. According to Feeding America; a national food donation organization of which Gleaners Food Bank is a member, one in six Americans struggle with hunger. What better gift to give this Holiday season than a meal to someone in need? If you’re not sure where your local food bank is located, check here or you can use Feeding America’s gift catalog to give online.
We encourage you to do what you can to help others this Holiday Season. We find it extremely rewarding. We’re sure you will, too.
