|5th Annual Day of Service|
Greater Charlotte Healthcare Executes Group held their fifth annual Day-of-Service on Saturday December 03, 2016 at Second Harvest Food Bank of Metrolina (SHFBM). Forty-eight (48) chapter members and their families volunteered their time at the food bank sorting, inspecting, and stocking food in the warehouse. First we were divided into groups to work in different areas of the warehouse. Next, an orientation was enthusiastically provided of tasks assigned.
For every hour of service performed provides the Food Bank with $21.88 in labor savings. Additionally, GCHEG raised $549 for the Second Harvest Food Bank. For every $1 donated, seven (7) pounds of food is distributed to our local community. Last year, SHFBM distributed over fifty (50) million pounds of food and household items to individuals in need in fourteen (14) counties in North Carolina and 5 counties in South Carolina. SHFBM would not be successful without volunteers like our chapter members. Thank you to everyone for their time and generosity given to our local community!
