Millions of Americans struggle with hunger every day, and food insecurity touches the lives of many people, from very young children to our elders – even in our own neighborhoods. So when we at Clark Pest Control were looking for a way to help out this holiday season, we felt that a canned food drive, which would benefit food banks and charities in each of the communities we serve, might be a really good way we could express our companywide spirit of generosity.
“We wanted to do something local, something the local branches could be very active in,” explains Kristen Hennings, Clark’s Marketing Department Coordinator. “Our goal is 5,000 cans by December 20.”
Employees at each of Clark Pest Control’s 21 service centers, along with the corporate office in Lodi, are donating canned food that will be distributed locally, and our customers also have been invited to participate.
Company wide have collected and donated 6,924 cans! We met our goal of 5,000 cans and almost add another 2,000 cans to our goal!
