Curry Real Estate Services Volunteers to Feed the Need
Did you know that one in eight people in our region are food insecure?
That means they may have food now but don’t know if they’ll have it, or enough of it, in the future. Hunger affects every type of community – rural, suburban and urban, every age group and is a year-round problem. Its impact is grave. Without nutritious food, children can’t succeed in school, families don’t thrive and seniors can’t live a healthy life. Hunger contributes to poor health, decreased productivity and increased medical costs and can force families to choose between food and other necessities like utilities or transportation.
Curry has a long history of supporting Harvesters.
Most recently more than 55 Curry Real Estate Services employees went as a team to Harvesters meeting the need that day to help get food to those in need.
“Harvesters is a vital service to our region and we enthusiastically believe in its mission,” said Ellen Todd, Curry president and CEO.
Serving 26 counties in northwestern Missouri and northeastern Kansas, Harvesters provides food and household products to more than 760 nonprofit agencies including emergency food pantries, community kitchens, homeless shelters and children’s homes just to name a few.
Last year, Harvesters donated more than 47 million meals to hungry people in our region.
“Volunteering at Harvesters is not only good for the community, it provides a perfect opportunity for Curry employees to have a little fun and bond as a group,” said Todd. “It is gratifying to work together as a team, side-by-side, talking and laughing while doing good for others. I’m grateful that so many of our team members contributed time to support such a critical organization.”
