NORTH VENICE, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--PGT Innovations (NYSE: PGTI), a national leader in the premium window and door category, recently completed its “Storm Out Summer Hunger” initiative and donated more than 1,900 pounds of food to community food banks located near the company’s five manufacturing facilities.
During the inaugural month-long drive in June, more than 1,700 non-perishable snacks and meal items were collected for local food banks, including All Faiths Food Bank in Sarasota, Fla., Desert Mission Food Bank in Phoenix, Ariz., Feeding South Florida in Pembroke Park, Fla., and Second Harvest Food Bank of Central Florida in Orlando, Fla. The total amount of food donated from the company’s team members equated to approximately 1,617 meals which will help combat hunger in children across the country.
“Sadly, hunger affects those who are most vulnerable, such as children, seniors and veterans,” said Jeff Jackson, PGT Innovations President and CEO. “Our team organized the company’s first “Storm Out Summer Hunger” food drive to support various “End Summer Hunger” campaigns run by our local food banks. I’m very proud of our team for stepping up to this call to help to fight hunger that specifically affects children while school is out. We plan to make this an annual initiative to help kids get through the summer months when food supplies are limited.”
According to FeedingAmerica.org, more than 41 million people struggle with hunger in the U.S., and one out of six children struggle with hunger.
