Vans4Cans – it’s back! Each year we hold a food drive to help our hungry neighbors, and this time it’s being held during Hunger Action month! September is a month in which people all over America stand together with Feeding America and the nationwide network of food banks to fight hunger. It’s a month to spread the word and take action on the hunger crisis to find a solution.
Pay the bills or put food on the table for your family. How would you decide what to do? Unfortunately, too many of our neighbors have to make this decision every day. They’re not worried about what’s for dinner. They have to worry about whether there is anything for dinner.
Hunger in our Community
According to the latest statistics, 1 in 8 Middle Tennesseans, including 1 in 5 children, struggle with hunger every day. And you might be surprised at how many of them are our neighbors. Hard-working people who too often have to choose between paying bills and buying food.
Fortunately, by joining together, we can make a difference.
Lee Company is joining forces with local foods banks, including Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee, Kentucky’s Heartland Food Bank, and the Food Bank of North Alabama for our 2019 Vans4Cans program. From now until September 30, we have several opportunities to join in our fight against hunger:
- Donate to our Virtual Food Drive where 96 cents of every dollar goes directly to feeding programs.
- Give canned food and other non-perishables to a Lee Company technician during your next service call.
- Drop off food donations at a Lee Company office.
What items do the food banks need?
Here are the most needed items requested by the food banks:
- Peanut butter
- Macaroni and cheese
- Canned fruit
- Canned vegetables
- Rice & beans
- Canned chicken
- Canned tuna
At Lee Company, we are motivated to give back as a reflection of how much we have been given. We know what a difference
Vans4Cans makes in the communities we serve, and we thank you for joining us in our fight against hunger!
