Food Bank Volunteers Are On TARGET!

This week, the Food Bank proudly welcomed a group of hard-working volunteers from TARGET Stores and the TARGET Distribution Center in Woodland. As part of the Live United: United Way employee giving campaign, Target employee teams all over the country are dedicating their time and talents to Feeding America and its network of food banks on May 14. We were fortunate to get a jump-start on this campaign by hosting our volunteers on Thursday, May 13! Target volunteers were on-hand to assist our warehouse staff with sorting one of our regular large-scale deliveries and then re-packing the donated goods into boxes that will later be distributed to needy families in rural areas through our Rural Food Delivery Program.

In addition to pushing up their sleeves, Team Target also gave a generous donation of $750 in gift cards! As Community Relations Group Manager Bernard Boudreaux recently stated, " Volunteerism is at the heart of Target." Thanks, again, Target. We appreciate everything you do to help us alleviate hunger in Yolo County!
