This November PCA’s full-line plant in Vincennes, Indiana, was heavily involved in helping non-profit organizations support low-income families in communities throughout southern Indiana.
The plant sponsored the Gobbler Gathering, a Thanksgiving meal giveaway coordinated by the Evansville Rescue Mission (ERM), which provides more than 2,200 struggling families in the tri-state area with a 60-pound box of food. PCA Vincennes has donated boxes to the event for several years. Some of the employees also participated in the Drumstick Dash, a 5K run which benefits the ERM.
Employees at the Vincennes plant also produced and donated ham boxes for the “Drive out Hunger” event, sponsored by Midas of Terre Haute. Together with Baesler's Market and the Salvation Army of Vigo County, Midas and PCA helped to provide a warm meal to needy families this Thanksgiving. PCA also made a donation to the local Salvation Army.
Finally, a donation of PCA boxes was delivered to The Lord’s Warehouse in Monroe City, Indiana, a community ministry that provides help to people in need. Needy registrants can visit twice per month for free food, clothing, shoes, household items and more.
Team members at PCA Vincennes are grateful for the opportunity to partner with these local organizations to give back to those in need in their community.
