Suttle-Straus, a commercial printer and marketing services provider in Waunakee, donated 842 pounds of food and $6,010.27 in cash to the Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin this month as part of the NBC15 Share Your Holidays to eliminate hunger campaign. With one pound equaling one meal and $1 equaling three meals, this donation equals 18,869 meals for families facing hunger in our area.
The company’s Wellness Advocates led the charge to top the previous year’s donations of 15,000+ meals. The company was split into departmental teams, creating some healthy competition to see who could donate the most.
Team leaders had very unique ideas for promoting the food drive, including the selling of coffee, donuts, muffins, hot cocoa, BBQ sandwiches, pies, trail mix, sweet desserts and salty snacks, nachos, and homemade soup to raise money for their teams.
Creative collection sites were produced as well, including a food cart and a replica of one of our delivery trucks.
“Suttle-Straus strongly believes in giving back to the community in which we live and work,” said Ted Straus, President and CEO. “I could not be prouder of the overall engagement and support from my team for this year’s holiday donation drive.”
Donations like these help ease the pain of hunger in Southern Wisconsin through food pantries, shelters and meal sites. Additional food donations may be dropped off to Second Harvest at 2802 Dairy Drive in Madison between 8 am and 4 pm or you can donate money online at www.secondharvestmadison.org.
