Synergy Glass & Packaging Donates to Local Food Banks
Synergy Glass & Packaging, Inc., sponsored their first charitable drive this December by donating a portion of the proceeds from new orders to two local food banks; the Napa Valley Food Bank in Napa, and the Redwood Empire Food Bank in Santa Rosa. Synergy Glass & Packaging is a local distributor of fine quality wine bottles and decided to combine their products with the generosity of their customers to ultimately provide cash donations to local Food Banks. Due to a openhanded response of many existing customers as well as new friends, each Food Bank received a check above the projected goals. Look for future campaigns from Synergy Glass & Packaging.
These local food banks work with the community and local businesses in order to share the bounty of this richly abundant area and meet the needs of many local residents. The clientele varies in age from birth to seniors and are served by an array of programs to ensure they receive a variety of nutritious products.
The representatives of the Food Banks remind all of the need for donations outside of the popular Holiday Seasons. People are hungry every day. While food is gladly accepted and needed, the Food Banks’ buying power is around 4 times that of the general public. Cash donations benefit their pantries greatly, especially during the current economy.
Even the lush wine country has ‘invisible’ populations of hungry children, the working poor, the out-of-work needy and the growing senior populations.
The Synergy Glass & Packaging Company family is looking forward to donating time at the facilities and continuing to develop successful future campaigns with their customers.
