Novus Food Drive KICK-OFF 2014

Posted 2 years 123 days ago |

WELCOME! WELCOME! WELCOME! To the 2014 Novus Food Drive!  We are so excited to be a part of such an amazing opportunity, put on by the St. Louis Area Foodbank, to help local kids find Freedom from Summer Hunger.  Today, Novus HQ employees received a lunch bag at their desk with information about the 2014 Novus Food Drive, along with a letter of support from our CEO Francois Fraudeau.

The St. Louis Area Foodbank recently reported that for 1 in 8 people in the St. Louis area, hunger is a reality.  During the summer months when children do not have access to school meals, the hunger only escalates. 

THEREFORE:   

OUR GOAL is to donate 30,000 lbs. of food to the St. Louis Area Foodbank between May 27th and June 13th.

 

The St. Louis Area Foodbank needs your help!

·         How can I help?

o   You can donate non-perishable food items OR donate through cash contributions.

o   Which is more helpful? Due to the purchasing power and not-for-profit status of the St. Louis Area Foodbank, cash contributions are actually MORE impactful than food purchased at retail prices.

·         Where can I donate?

o   Red donation barrels will be located in the research wing and on the 1st and 2nd floors near the stairwell. 

o   You can also donate online at http://vad.aidmatrix.org/vadxml.cfm?driveid=25528

o   OR provide a check payable to St. Louis Area Foodbank to Lisa Ervin

PLEASE consider helping local kids find Freedom from Summer Hunger and GIVE!
