As the increased need for food assistance persists as a result of the pandemic, Advantage Truck Group (ATG) kicks-off its Haulin’ 4 Hunger donations from December 13-22 to help provide meals to people facing hunger in communities near ATG locations throughout New England.
Through Haulin’ 4 Hunger, ATG will deliver over 3,500 fresh meals to eight food pantry organizations in Central Massachusetts. Additionally, Haulin’ 4 Hunger’s fourth quarter donations of non-perishable foods will go to six organizations in three states. These meals will support those in need this holiday season.
“We are proud to continue our tradition of helping others by fighting food insecurity in our communities and are grateful for the support that our employees, customers, and other partners have for this program,” says Kevin G. Holmes, president and CEO of ATG. “As we continue to grow our network across New England, we are committed to bringing Haulin’ 4 Hunger to every area where we operate.”
WEEK OF GIVING
The Haulin’ 4 Hunger week of giving includes donations of fresh meals on Thursday, December 16. ATG hand-delivered over 3,500 meals to organizations offering food pantries and other services in its local communities. The holiday meals consisted of turkeys and assorted fixings. ATG and Haulin’ 4 Hunger made deliveries throughout the day, with eight organizations receiving fresh meal donations.
At ATG’s locations in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, and Vermont, employees selected food pantries that support local communities to receive donations. The team will deliver this quarter’s bulk donations from December 13-22 to six hunger relief organizations.
“Each of the organizations we support through Haulin’ 4 Hunger are working to ensure those facing hardships have enough food to eat during the holidays and every day, and we are honored to help them in this critical effort,” Holmes says.
Furthermore, the commitment of its employees, customers, and partners makes ATG’s Haulin’ 4 Hunger initiative possible. With support from local businesses, Haulin’ 4 Hunger has helped bring food to the people who need it most. Through last year’s partnerships, ATG doubled its donations and expanded support to 12 food pantry organizations. This was in response to the increased need for food assistance in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Since its launch in 2012, ATG and its Haulin’ 4 Hunger team has dedicated countless hours to collect, sort, package, and deliver food for those in need. To date, the program helped provide more than 26,000 meals to 14 food pantry organizations across three states.
