The season of giving is upon us and Publishers Clearing House employees are coming together to do all they can to make a difference.
Over the past couple of weeks, Publishers Clearing House employees gathered up some much needed items and donated them to an amazing charity called The INN. The INN, also known as the Interfaith Nutrition Network, is a charitable organization that serves hungry and homeless Long Islanders through soup kitchens, emergency shelters, and long-term housing programs. Founded in 1983 as a single soup kitchen run by a group of concerned volunteers, The INN now serves more than 400,000 meals annually to hungry children, adults, and seniors. Individuals who volunteer at The INN truly have love and compassion for others, and it is such an honor that we get to help them in their mission.
Having a hot hearty meal is very important, especially now when temperatures can easily dip below freezing. Knowing this, PCH employees came together and collected an amazing amount of food to donate to The INN including 200 cans of food, 150 boxes of pasta and rice, and 150 other food items. We also collected 2 jackets and 2 blankets that will provide some much-needed warmth this chilly season.
Every year around Thanksgiving, Publishers Clearing House gives all of its employees a gift card to use towards their holiday meals. And every year, many PCH employees graciously give back their gift cards so they can be donated. This year was no different. Over $680 was collected in all from gift cards that PCH employees gave back. Publishers Clearing House has been using this money to buy even more food and necessities to donate to The Inn throughout the season.
Being able to help a great organization like The INN has been an amazing experience. It truly is our pleasure as PCH employees to be able to help those in need. If you would like to help the caring individuals at The INN and donate some items of your own, you can visit their website!
Happy Holidays everyone!
