MELVINDALE, Mich. December 17, 2018 — Evans Distribution Systems recently concluded an inter-office food drive for the holidays. The holidays can be a tough time financially, so the Evans team wanted to help those who are less fortunate. Sponsored by the Evans Corporate Social Responsibility Committee, Evans is collecting food to donate to the Gleaners Community Food Bank.
Gleaners has been collecting and distributing food for families in need for over 40 years. The food drive was the first event for the new Corporate Social Responsibility Committee, with more events planned for the future months. With donations coming from the staff and willing customers, Evans managed to raise 747 different food items as well as 600 cases of juice donated from a customer. Not including the juice donated that is enough food for 614 meals.
Human Resource Manager and committee member Jennifer Guerra stated “I’m very proud of the Evans Team for the outcome of our Christmas food drive. There is no greater feeling than helping others during times of need”. The Corporate Social Responsibility Committee has already started setting goals for the next food drive.
