Ferguson recently concluded its second annual Feed the Need campaign, as more than 250 of the company’s locations collected food, supplies, toiletries and monetary donations for 106 nonprofit organizations around the country.
Ferguson headquarters led the effort, collecting nearly 4,300 pounds of food to the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank – more than double its total from a year ago – and monetary donations, providing almost 7,000 meals to the residents of Hampton Roads. Associates also collected several hundred pounds of food and a variety of supplies for the Peninsula SPCA.
“Ferguson associates genuinely care about our community and helping others who are less fortunate,” said Ferguson CEO Frank Roach. “I am grateful to our associates who, once again, generously supported the needs of our community.”
The annual three-week drive was conducted at the beginning of summer to coincide with the conclusion of the school year and support the local food banks during a time when donations are needed most. The initiative aligned with the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) mission to strengthen the communities where we live and work.
