CORT Locations Across The Nation Give Back by Hosting Thanksgiving Food DrivesDecember 4, 2018 | 4:43 pm |
From pumpkin pie and stuffing, to family time and laughs at the table, there are many things to love about Thanksgiving. Here at Move For Hunger, our favorite part of the holiday is all the food drives that take place! Not everyone will get the chance to eat a meal with their loved ones this time of year, but it’s the food drives hosted by kind people all across the country that can change that. Our partners from CORT are one of those who are out there making that change.
Employees from various CORT locations, including Orlando, San Diego, Cincinnati, their corporate office and online business division all set out to collect food donations this November. They were encouraged to bring in nonperishable items into the office, such as peanut butter, tuna fish, pasta, canned vegetables and more. We are very happy to report that each location did an awesome job! Combined, their efforts resulted in a collection of more than 2,200 pounds of food, which is enough to provide 1,850 meals for families in need. Each office then delivered the donations to local food banks in their area.
41 million Americans face hunger every single day. With so many inspiring individuals all over the nation, just like the employees at CORT, we can drive down that number together. Many thanks to CORT for not only taking the time to make a difference in their community, but also for being an awesome partner!
