WP Rawl Donates 500 Cases of Fresh Produce to Harvest Hope
PELION, SC - On WP Rawl’s agenda for the holiday season—donating fresh produce to bring joy to families serviced by Harvest Hope Food Bank in Columbia, S.C.
Food banks often have trouble providing its patrons with fresh produce, especially during the holidays, but thankfully, WP Rawl came to the rescue. This past Monday, the company donated five hundred mixed gift boxes of fresh produce to Harvest Hope, including items like yellow and butternut squash, cabbage, sweet potatoes, green onions, beets, leeks, and zucchini.
“Harvest Hope Food Bank is so very thankful for the gift of 500 produce boxes which WP Rawl donated recently,” Harvest Hope Food Bank CEO, Denise Holland, explained. “These boxes, filled with beautiful produce, will be distributed to the many needy clients that we are currently assisting. The fresh produce will not only serve as part of a nutritious holiday meal, but for the nourishment of our clients prior to and after the holiday.”
According to a press release, the donation was made in honor of all of WP Rawl’s customers and employees as a “thank you” for their support.
“We are blessed as a family and as a company, and it is our year-round commitment to our global and local communities to share when we can,” said Ashley Rawl, Vice President of Sales, Marketing and Product Development at WP Rawl. “It is always our goal to give back to those who need a little extra help, and particularly this year with the devastations our state suffered.”
This generous gift is a tremendous blessing to the clients of Harvest Hope, and, notably to those who are experiencing a greater level of need due to the recent flooding, Holland finished.
And this isn't the first charity WP Rawl has helped in its year-long mission to end hunger—the company has worked with organizations like RAMP, (Rockin’ Appalachian Mom Project) and Katie’s Krops, for whom the company sponsors an annual all-expenses paid summer camp.
