Joining together for a food drive, Rhythmlink International and companies in the Columbia Industrial Park donated 266 pounds of canned goods, food, and non-perishable goods to the Harvest Hope Food Bank.
Each year, Rhythmlink hosts a food drive during the month of November to support Harvest Hope’s mission to provide for the needs of hungry people. Muscle & Strength, Dayton Rogers, MasTec Advanced Technologies, Blue Marlin Catering, and more joined Rhythmlink’s efforts this year to produce 56 more pounds than last year’s drive. Although all donations are accepted, the drive is intended to collect food and other goods to provide meals to citizens of the Midlands during the holiday season.
“Each year we try to do our part by giving back to local communities and supporting our neighbors in need,” says Rhythmlink’s Garrett Butler in a release. “This year, everyone came together to support the cause to fight hunger, and the results were truly incredible.”
Harvest Hope Food Bank served 2,125,460 individuals throughout our service area in fiscal year 2014-2015. To assist in identifying pockets of poverty and hunger across 20 South Carolina counties and the distribution of food to hungry people across our service area, Harvest Hope partners with 476 member non-profit agencies.
Rhythmlink’s next service project within the Columbia Industrial Park will be its 7th Annual Blood Drive in the summer of 2016.
