Rhythmlink International employees recently donated 2,294 pounds of canned goods, food and non-perishable items to the Harvest Hope Food Bank, their largest donation to date.
Rhythmlink hosts an annual food drive during the month of November to support Harvest Hope's mission to provide for the needs of hungry people.
Muscle & Strength, also located in Columbia Industrial Park, joined Rhythmlink's efforts with their own donation of over 100 pounds. Participants in the food drive collect food and other goods to provide meals to citizens of the Midlands during the holiday season, a time when needs at the food bank are typically high.
"Each year we try to do our part by giving back to local communities and supporting our neighbors in need," said Rhythmlink's Grace Good. "It was wonderful to see everyone come together to support the cause to fight hunger, and the results were truly impressive!”
Harvest Hope Food Bank served over 2 million individuals last year. In addition to identifying pockets of poverty and hunger across 20 SC counties and distributing goods to food insecure people across their service area, Harvest Hope serves as South Carolina’s primary disaster hunger relief emergency feeding organization as designated by the SC Emergency Management Division.
