Heart Technologies Collects for the Community
Heart Technologies believes in giving back to our community whenever possible. When we were approached to help support local families through a canned food drive for Neighborhood House, Heart jumped at the chance.
Neighborhood House is a nonprofit organization that serves food to those in our community that need it, from children to senior citizens. For over 100 years, Neighborhood House has been providing meals to those who cannot get the necessary nutrition through programs like Meals on Wheels, school breakfast and lunch programs, and summer meals for less fortunate children when school is not in session. For more information, watch their informational video here.
This fall, Neighborhood House was asking for donations for their food pantry. The pantry gives boxes of food away to families who require extra financial assistance. These donations are non-perishable items, including proteins and canned pasta dinners, so that the items are not under strict expiration. The family can then enjoy them whenever is most convenient for them. This also helps ensure that the food is not damaged in its trips from store to pantry to home.
When called into action, Heart employees came together to support Neighborhood House. Cans, boxes, and bags of goods were brought to our office and placed in the collection bins. These goods will be brought to Neighborhood House for distribution in the hopes that all families, regardless of financial status, will have full tables and full hearts this Thanksgiving.
