21 Dec Path Resorts 2022 Holiday Food Drive
The holiday season is an exciting time. A moment of celebration and giving, where families and loved ones are able to gather and enjoy spending time with one another. However, for many, the season can be a difficult time both financially and emotionally. It is important to know that there is assistance for those in need throughout the stressful holiday season. A major resource for support in our immediate area are food pantries. Food pantries play a crucial role in providing aid to individuals and families in need, especially throughout these difficult times. These nonprofit organizations offer items to those who may not have access to enough food to sustain them or those who are facing food insecurities.
Path Resorts recently held a food drive to benefit a local pantry, Agape Ministries Servants Inc Food Pantry, located just down the road from the Center Harbor Inn. Team members were encouraged to come together to show support and make a positive impact on our local community by means of the collection of nonperishable food items. Management at Path Resorts had promised to match the final count raised by employees and as a group we were determined to make a difference in our community. We are so pleased with the success of this year’s food drive! From the timeline of November 5th – December 5th, employees from Steele Hill Resort, the Summit Resort, the Center Harbor Inn and the Riverfront Contact Center collected over 500 nonperishable food items including canned soups and vegetables, rice, cereal, pasta and beans to name a few. Due to the excess amount of items collected by employees throughout the drive, management bought items in bulk at wholesale shops for the company match. The final count of Path Resort’s 2022 Food Drive totaled over 1,000 items!
The food pantry was exceptionally grateful for the charitable contribution from Path Resorts, as they are able to see the benefits of the donations firsthand. Donating to food pantries during the holiday season is an important way to give back to our communities where every little bit helps to make a difference in the lives of those in need. Holding a food drive is a great way to bring people together and make a positive impact and we are already looking forward to organizing our next collection.
