Advantage Truck Group employees recently delivered 150 cases of tuna fish to six food pantry organizations across its New England dealer network.
Donations were made through Haulin’ 4 Hunger, a program ATG started in Shrewsbury in 2012 to provide fresh meals to those in need during the holiday season and expanded this spring to include donations of non-perishable items to help meet ongoing needs in communities near its dealer locations, including Manchester, Lebanon and Seabrook, New Hampshire; Westminster, Vermont; and Westfield and Raynham, Massachusetts.
ATG co-founder, president and CEO Kevin Holmes, and co-founder Kevin McDevitt, personally delivered 25 cases of tuna fish to the food pantry in Raynham, Mass., where ATG is opening a new facility. The Raynham food pantry relies upon donations from the local community and businesses, making bulk donations of popular items like tuna fish especially important. This is the third bulk donation ATG has made this year to the Raynham food pantry, ATG says.
Since April, ATG has donated 3,600 non-perishable food items to six community food pantries through Haulin' 4 Hunger.
