PCH Employees Help Feed The Hungry!

When folks see the Publishers Clearing House van pull up, they get see visions of winning a millionaire-making SuperPrize(R).

On Monday, November 21st, people got excited for a different reason when they saw Publishers Clearing House pull up to the door.

That’s the day PCH delivered all the produce, canned goods, and food stuffs collected during this year’s annual Thanksgiving Food Drive.

To help feed the hungry, Publishers Clearing House worked with Twin Pines, a local charity in Port Washington, New York, that distributes food to several local not-for-profit organizations including youth programs, group homes & more. Twin Pines trucks go out five days a week and feed over 3,000 people annually!

From November 7th through November 18th, Publishers Clearing House employees collected:

  • Canned Vegetables
  • Canned Fruit
  • Pasta & Noodles
  • Canned Soups
  • Flour
  • Baby Food
  • Hot & Cold Cereals
  • Rice
  • and more

Twin Pines is happy to report that this year’s food drive was one of the most successful in its history with Publishers Clearing House. But that’s only phase one of how PCH is looking to help feed the hungry! And it starts with a long-standing Publishers Clearing House Thanksgiving tradition.

For years, Publishers Clearing House has given employees Thanksgiving turkeys to help make the holiday merry. (Actually now, instead of turkeys, PCH gives employees supermarket gift cards to go towards those holiday birds.)  Many employees, though, donate those gift cards and company officials will use the proceeds to purchase more food for the hungry. So Publishers Clearing House will have the pleasure of soon delivering hundreds of dollars of additional food items to Twin Pines to help more families!

Yes, Thanksgiving is a time to eat, enjoy time with family … and then eat some more! But it’s also time to count the reasons we should be grateful for whatever blessings have been given to us. One blessing I’m grateful for are those small opportunities to help our neighbors. Because it’s those small acts of kindness that could mean more than we could possibly imagine!

Right now you can put a smile on all our readers’ faces by sharing some small act of kindness that you performed or was done for you!

First of all “Happy Thanksgiving, Elliott and to everyone else that might read this today!” The BEST thing I ever did was I found these cards online that I thought would be fun to do. They said this: SMILE. You’ve just been tagged! Experiments in anonymous kindness is the name of the game and now you’re it! The other side of the cards said: Someone reached out to you with an anonymous act of kindness. Now it’s your chance to do the same. Do something nice for someone, leave this card behind and keep the spirit going!)~It was more fun being anonymous and doing alot of nice things for others that was having a hard time~sort of like a “SECRET SANTA” ~too bad my BIG COMPUTER got hit by lightening and I haven’t had the time to fix it, nor can I afford the ink anymore..those were the days I truly had fun at work (making others *SMILE* if just for a moment!) Have a GREAT THANKSGIVING EVERYONE! We have so much to be thankful for!

I,m so happy to read what your employees are doing for the unfortunate that need help. I would be the first to help others but financially can’t afford it as I am not working due to a longtime illness. Wishing all of you a Happy Thanksgiving and blessings to all today whatever the circumstances!

Thank you for your acts of service and kindness in feeding the hungry and helping the local charities especially in these times of need. Times are so difficult for everyone and every act, big or small, makes a difference in some ones life. Your time and joyful giving makes a difference more than you know.

Happy Thanksgiving pch :) To name some acts of kindness I try to help people when I can. I have painted houses for the poor and worked for my city by painting parks and cleaning up trash. I saw a mother crying because she could not afford milk so I gave her money to buy milk. I have also helped a mother buy gas whn she could not afford to on her own. I think about how hard it is to get by and how just a little help could make someones day much better. My mom has done acts of kindness to everyone around her. She has done everything for me when I needed her too!

Making people from all walks of life… live, laugh, love… that’s what PCH.com will do for you and me… I enjoy seeing and reading all the blogs, pictures, entering the sweeps and playing the games… But, I am honored and proud mostly because PCH stands behind it’s name even in the community… offering help to people like me in need! I couldn’t ask for more… I may not be there in Port Washington, NY to receive food donations… but, there is someone there just like me in need who is receiving it for me! That’s why I love my PCH.com and the Super-Prize Patrol Team….
Totally A W E S O M E!!!!

I’ve paid a previous friend co-worker’s rent for a month one time and gave them two weeks worth of food when they were between jobs. The lady was a single, yet still fairly young grandmother who had to support and care for two of her young grandchildren very unexpectedly.
She was so happy she was crying.
I’m glad that helped her over a hard bump in her life.

Happy Thanksgiving. It wasn’t Thanksgiving when it happened. I was driving my car to port and all of the hotels were filled. It was an area I didn’t know and a little scary, I was so tired and didn’t know what I was going to do at the last hotel when they said they were full. I young man said I could have his room, he would stay in his friends. GOD sent that Angel and I am still thankful to this day.
