WP Rawl Donates 500 Cases of Fresh Produce to Harvest Hope
PELION, SC - WP Rawl is taking the holidays to heart this season with a generous donation of fresh produce to Harvest Hope Food Bank in Columbia, SC. Last week, the company donated 500 mixed gift boxes of fresh produce to Harvest Hope which included apples, oranges, regular and sweet potatoes, celery & onion mix, collards, butternut squash, cabbage, squash, and zucchini, according to a press release.
This is just one of many ways that WP Rawl has helped Harvest Hope throughout the year. Last summer for example, the grower hosted the Katie’s Krops Camp at its headquarters, which included a service project at the food bank. The campers built a raised bed-vegetable garden with 12 beds and various types of vegetables per bed to serve as a sustainable source of fresh produce for Harvest Hope.
“As a family and as a company, it is important to us to share with our global and local communities,” said Ashley Rawl, Vice President of Sales, Marketing, and Product Development at WP Rawl. “It is so satisfying to see that the Harvest Hope staff and volunteers have enjoyed maintaining the raised beds that the Katie’s Krops campers built this summer and we are happy to continue to help them in various ways throughout the year.”
Harvest Hope CEO Denise Holland showed her appreciation for the benevolence WP Rawl has shown the food bank this year. “This donation of packed fruits and vegetables for our clients during the Christmas season is such a thoughtful and generous gift; these boxes will be used throughout our Emergency Food Pantries and Mobile Food Pantries. Having fresh fruit and vegetables is very important to our clients at this time of year and some have little to no access to it otherwise. I am so thankful for the support from WP Rawl for their help in providing delicious, fresh produce to struggling families in our community.”
We’d like to thank WP Rawl for helping increase fresh produce consumption during the holidays and throughout the year.
