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 Backyard
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 2018 Vans4Cans program. From now until November 15, we have several opportunities to join in our fight against hunger:
- 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
- Donate to our Virtual Food Drive where 96 cents of every dollar goes directly to feeding programs
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 thank you for joining us in to make a difference in the lives of our hungry neighbors. Together, we will fight hunger and feed hope!
