In conjunction with our Shippers Gives Back program, members of our corporate team recently volunteered at the Jan Pruitt Food Pantry!
The Jan Pruitt Food Pantry is one of four fixed pantries associated with Catholic Charities Dallas (CCD) and is located in Lancaster, TX. With the mission to alleviate hunger and food security in the Dallas community, these food banks allow those in need to receive grocery items and food at a location that is convenient, safe, and clean. Some of their food pantry locations even offer client-choice options—allowing for a direct selection of specific foods. These pantries are a resource for families facing a temporary crisis due to natural disasters, homelessness, or poverty.
To help in Catholic Charities Dallas’ mission, our team threw on their blue jeans and left the office for the day to sort, bag, and distribute food to families in need. Each year, we partner with the CCD through our annual canned drive and volunteer events like this. It is always a rewarding experience and a fun time being good neighbors together as a team!
