24 employees from American Solutions for Business recently volunteered at the local United Way of Douglas & Pope Counties’ Food Drop. A total of 83 families were served.
Volunteers were split into two groups at the event, which took place at Glenwood United Parish. The first group of employees helped unload the truck and unbox goods. The second group kept the tables of food stocked, assisted people with their items by pushing their boxes on a cart and loaded groceries into their cars.
“This is such an important resource in our community to support those facing food insecurity,” explained Maria Haug, accountant and office manager for the United Way. “We are so thankful for the great teams of helping hands that American Solutions for Business provided.”
American Solutions for Business provides their employees with Volunteer Time Off (VTO) so that they have the ability to donate their time and skills to area non-profit organizations.
“Giving back to our community will always be part of the American culture,” said Justin Zavadil, ASB President. “The food drop was a great opportunity and we’re happy to support the United Way and local families in need.”
