This past holiday season, PCA’s Atlanta full-line plant pitched in to help a local community service organization. The Hosea Feed the Hungry program was in need of boxes to pack and ship canned goods and toiletries for shelters and homes for the elderly in the Atlanta area. The plant responded with a donation of 1,500 boxes for the program.
Hosea Feed the Hungry is a year-round program that provides human services free of charge. These programs include providing shelter for the homeless, aiding senior citizens, providing meals for over 50,000 families a year, promoting education with back-to-school programs and much more. Hosea’s selfless volunteers give back to the community 365 days a year to teach others the importance of giving and how that act can reveal the best qualities of the human spirit.
According to one PCA team member, “Hosea Feed the Hungry has had a lasting impact on the city of Atlanta. PCA could think of no better way to give back to the community this holiday season than to work with such a caring and distinguished organization. Our plant produced and shipped boxes used for storing and transporting food, clothes and gifts over the holidays. We could not be prouder of PCA’s hard-working employees and their willingness to contribute to such a noble cause.”
