Vanguard Bringing “All Cans On Deck”
August 2012 Results
This year, Vanguard employees generously donated 34,329 meals to Philabaundance through their 16th Annual food drive, “All Cans on Deck.” During the drive, held June 20 through July 6, the crew focused on creating healthy meals.
“The local agencies told us they have difficulty feeding individuals and families who don’t get enough to eat every day,” said Kim Lynch, Vanguard principal, Institutional Investor Group, and the sponsor of All Cans on Deck. “To reinforce the most critical needs, the All Cans on Deck team created a sample shopping list with the most-requested healthy foods, such as canned meat, fish, vegetables, and fruit; peanut butter and jelly; pasta and rice; soups and stews; cereals; and bottled water…”
This company’s ongoing admirable spirit has been a tremendous help in getting food to those who need it most in our communities.
No rookies in the fight against hunger, Vanguard also currently holds the title as Philabundance’s 2011 Corporate Beet Down winner, having raised more than 1 million (1,009,474) pounds of high-quality, healthy food items during that time.
A big thanks to Vanguard for your continued enthusiasm and support!
Once again, Vanguard employees took hunger into their own hands, making the 15th annual “All Cans on Deck” food drive their most successful ever.
Vanguard’s “All Cans on Deck” program was developed to help organizations like Philabundance who have difficulty keeping up with the need during the summer months when most school meal programs are harder to access. In total, Vanguard employees have donated more than 6 million items to their local communities since the drive began in 1997.
On behalf of the many families in need across the Delaware Valley, Philabundance thanks Vanguard for their outstanding commitment to fighting hunger regionally and nationally.
