Sullivan Tire and Auto Service headquartered in Norwell, Mass., joined forces with United Way of Greater Plymouth County and various other local organizations last week to pack nutritious meals for donation to various food pantries in the area.
Volunteers gathered at American Legion Post 112 in Abington, Mass., to assemble and pack three different vitamin-rich, high-protein meals -- rice and beans, macaroni and cheese, and oatmeal -- to ensure their recipients were given the nutritious food they deserve.
The volunteers were able to pack enough meals to feed over 18,000 individuals. These meals were distributed to 11 local food pantries: Abington Food Pantry, St. Vincent De Paul, BAMSI, Bridgewater State University, Brockton Area Arc, Brockton Healthy Families, Family & Community Resources, Health Imperatives, Rockland Food Pantry, Self Help Head Start, United Way's Family Center at Community Connections of Brockton, and the Whitman Food Pantry.
“What a wonderful experience it was to see so many giving people, along with local businesses, willing to donate their time and energy to help thousands of people in need,” says Sullivan Tire’s Vice President of Marketing Paul Sullivan. “Thank you to United Way for orchestrating this great initiative in feeding over 18,000 of our neighbors.”
