As we’ve done the past several holiday seasons, Sterling Administration and our employees have donated to food banks in our markets throughout the country as a way of saying thanks to our members, clients and partners. The organizations were selected by our employees and some are Sterling clients.
We are pleased to share these photographs taken at the food banks as we delivered the donations.
Second Harvest Food Bank
A Sterling client, Second Harvest Food Bank of Santa Clara and San Mateo Counties has been providing services to the community since 1974. They are the single largest non-profit provider of food to low-income people in the area – the majority of whom are families with dependent children and senior citizens.
Los Angeles Mission
Having begun as a small rescue mission in 1936, Los Angeles Mission is now among the nation’s largest service providers to the homeless. Los Angeles Mission provides hot meals, safe shelter, clothing, personal care and life-transforming long-term rehabilitation to hungry and homeless men, women and children. Los Angeles Mission is also a Sterling client.
North Texas Food Bank
Founded in 1982, the North Texas Food Bank is a Dallas-based nonprofit hunger relief organization that distributes donated, purchased and prepared foods through a network of more than 340 Food Assistance Partners in 13 counties. As a member of Feeding America, they support the nutritional needs of children, families and seniors through education, advocacy and strategic partnerships.
Serving the people of Hawaii for 31 years, the Hawaii Foodbank is the only nonprofit agency in the state of Hawaii that collects, warehouses and distributes mass quantities of both perishable and non-perishable food to 200 member agencies as well as food banks on the Big Island, Maui and Kauai.
