Marcone, North America's largest distributor of appliance repair, HVAC, plumbing, commercial kitchen and pool and spa parts, has shared the results of an annual food drive to benefit Illinois, Indiana and Michigan food banks.
Marcone HVAC company Munch's Supply raised $9,716 and 2,238 products for food banks in the communities it serves.
"The communities that we serve represent more than just a customer to Munch's Supply," said Steve Raimondi, Market President for Illinois and Indiana. "These are our neighbors, co-workers and customers. It's a privilege to play a small part in giving back."
Employees and customers generously brought in canned goods, non-perishable items and household paper donations to each Munch's Supply branch throughout the month of November. Customers also supported the fundraiser through donations added onto their sales, and employees purchased raffle tickets for their chance to win company clothing, time off or a Target gift card.
"The holidays can be a particularly challenging time," said Adam Slusher, Market President for Michigan. "As a leader in our communities, we want to give local families a helping hand so they can enjoy their celebrations."
The annual food drive fundraising effort is an integral part of operations for Munch's Supply. All donations are brought to food banks near each branch.
