On Tuesday, December 20th, Isaac’s employees from locations in the Harrisburg & York area and Central Office volunteered at New Hope Ministries in Mechanicsburg. The volunteers started off by packing bags with vitamins for children along with info on healthy eating.
Next they worked on sorting and packing items for the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank’s “Power Pack Program” which provides backpacks of food for at-risk children for the weekend. Organizations, such as New Hope Ministries, sign up to be Power Pack sites where the food is pre-packed and distributed to the kids who need it.
It was a great way for Isaac’s employees to get excited for the upcoming “Share The Warmth” campaign starting January 1st, 2012. The theme is “Buy Soup, Feed Hungry Kids!” and for every cup or bowl of soup sold with a sandwich or large green salad in January, Isaac’s will donate $1 to programs, like the Power Pack Program, that feed hungry kids in Central Pennsylvania.
In addition to Central Pennsylvania Food Bank’s Power Pack Program, Isaac’s will be donating to Greater Berks Food Bank’s Weekender Backpack Buddy Program, Chester County Food Bank’s Weekend Food Backpack Program and the Power Packs Project in Lancaster. Check back soon for more information…and definitely remember to Buy Soup, Feed Hungry Kids in January at Isaac’s!
