10 Dec CRAIN HELPS SECOND HARVEST FIGHT HUNGER
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Crain Construction volunteers sorted 8,991 pounds of frozen food at Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee last week as part of the company’s ongoing community give-back program.
Working in the freezer area, the 14-member crew sorted meats, vegetables and desserts that will feed approximately 7,492 food insecure people in Middle Tennessee.
“We are honored to help Second Harvest feed the one in eight Middle Tennesseans who struggle with hunger daily,” said Michael Rankin, Crain Construction president and CEO. “It is our duty to support those doing good in our community and help our less fortunate neighbors.”
Crain Construction has a long history of supporting Second Harvest with fundraising and volunteering. Last year, the general contractor completed the nearly 26,000-square-foot Second Harvest western distribution center in Camden, Tenn. The new facility houses food bank and volunteer engagement operations, and to date, has distributed more than 4.6 million pounds of food – equaling 3.8 million meals for children, families and seniors in 14 counties.
