Outreach program in our community
The office had the ability to pull together 50 Weekend Power Packs for the local Riverview School district in less than 12 hours today. I am thankful and beyond humbled that our company has such amazing people that jump in and help out those in need. We are working on a few more ideas on more Weekend Power Packs in the future months and hygiene and self-care kits for the homeless. If you would like to participate, volunteer, support or have another outreach program in your community please let me know. Not only should we work to help out those in need during the season of giving but throughout the year as that is what truly makes our communities a better place!
Weekend Power Packs are supplemental food program put together by community members for kids in need on weekends to help relieve hunger, stress from their families, and to keep the children healthier and ready to learn come Monday morning. We call this relief “Power Packs” and they will be given to each child in need before leaving school each Friday in the Riverview School District. Each pack will consist of produce, oatmeal, and other non-perishable items that will last the entire weekend.
