On November 13th, 7 associates from JVM’s Corporate office used their Community Day to volunteer at the Northern Illinois Food Bank. The food bank, housed in a beautiful new warehouse in Geneva IL, is impressive and well run. It currently provides food to 71,000 people each week, as a member of the Feeding America network.
Team JVM was tasked with bagging potatoes into 5# mesh bags that we made ourselves. In three hours, our team inspected, bagged, weighed and packed 3,465 pounds of potatoes. The entire shift packed 8,115 pounds which will be used to provide Thanksgiving dinner for 12,984 hungry neighbors.
JVM is truly “Committed to Community” by enabling our associates to donate their time and talent to help those less fortunate.
