Throughout the month of March, LCN Consulting collected canned goods and nonperishable food for the less fortune. As a team, we carried 175 lbs of food to St. Agnes Church’s food pantry in Little Falls, New Jersey.
LCN Consulting decided in 2019, to select a charity and start contributing towards the community and give back. It was hard to determine which type of charity to donate towards. We thought about both monetary and nonperishable food donations.
We decided against monetary donations, because we were unsure where all the money would be spent. LCN wanted to ensure that all the donations would end up in the hands of the less fortunate.
We found Corporations Feeding America, which held an annual competition from March 1st to March 31st, 2019 and decided to join the fight in conquering hunger. The competition was against other organizations around the same size as LCN. Every company was determined to collect and donate the most weight in canned and nonperishable food.
Corporations Feeding America helped direct us towards St. Agnes Church and informed us about their food pantry. St. Agnes Church coordinates a food pantry every two weeks for the less fortune. Anyone who can donate food is able to participate in bringing canned and nonperishable goods.
When we arrived at St. Agnes Church with 175 lbs of canned and nonperishable food, the administration was overjoyed and we all knew many less fortune people would have meals on their tables.
LCN Consulting wants to inform everyone that it is possible for every organization and individual to contribute towards their community to make it a better place. We want to encourage everyone to donate, even if it’s one can, to their local food pantry to help people in need. Together we can change the world one can at a time.
