Henderson Properties asked their communities to deliver, and they did, with over 1,200 pounds of food and non-perishable items delivered. Hundreds of needy families will be fed through these donations.
The Henderson Properties food drive is at an end, but the benefits for needy local families are just starting. Through the efforts of the Henderson Properties team, a total of 1,210 pounds of food and non-perishable items were donated to Second Harvest.
Wendy Nyberg of Second Harvest was impressed with the donation amount. “That will provide over 800 meals to people in need in the community,” she told the Henderson Properties team her team collected the donations.
While all Henderson Properties offices and communities were able to participate, several stood out. For the 2013 food drive, the Davidson office had no participation, but this year the office collected around 10 bags and a large monetary donation.
“We attribute much of this success to greater advertising this year,” stated Kelly Wallace of Henderson Properties. “We put out a TV spot that brought in several people from the community to donate. In fact, one person specifically mentioned the TV spot when they donated.”
Other offices of note were the Fort Mill Office, which collected 2/3 of a barrel full of food, and the Indian Trail Office, which saw contributions from employees and neighboring offices.
“We are thrilled with the participation this year,” stated Wallace, “and hope to see this food drive continue to grow in future years, so we can help even more people.”
The food drive finished on September 26. Boxes and barrels were placed in each of the Henderson Properties offices, where non-perishable items were collected. Thanks to our great staff for their time and hard-work on this community event!
