Gulfstream employees and families volunteer for Placer Food Bank
On Saturday, March 9th, 18 volunteers made up of Gulfstream Aerospace employees and their families volunteered their time at United Way certified nonprofit partner Placer Food Bank. The group arrived motivated to help tackle some of the problems with hunger in Placer County. In 2012 alone, Placer Food Bank has distributed 5.9 million pounds of food. Together, the volunteers from Gulfstream Aerospace sorted through boxes and boxes of donated food, organizing the food by type.This is just one step in the process to ensure that the food is distributed appropriately to those who need it. The few hours spent helping to sort food will touch many lives for days and weeks to come.
Thank you to Gulfstream Aerospace for stepping up and pitching in to help United Way certified nonprofit partner Placer Food Bank. Thank you to employees of Placer Food Bank for being wonderful hosts for the volunteers and making it a fun day all about making a difference and growing together as a team.
