WP Rawl Gives Back This Holiday Season - Donates Produce to Those in Need
Pelion, S.C. - December 22, 2016 -WP Rawl, the premier grower,
processor and shipper of leafy greens, gave back this holiday
season with a donation of fresh produce to a local food bank.
Each holiday season, the company selects an organization to make a
donation to on behalf of WP Rawl's family of employees.
For the second year in a row, WP Rawl donated fresh produce to
Harvest Hope Food Bank in Columbia, SC. The company is a year-long
supporter of the non-profit, donating 560,000 pounds of produce
this year alone.
The holiday donation included items such as bagged turnip and
collard greens, bunched beets and bins of bulk collard greens.
Volunteers at the food bank packed the vegetables into boxes that
can easily be dispersed to families in need.
"Our goal as a company is to give back to our local and global
communities throughout the year," said Ashley Rawl, vice president
of sales, marketing and product development. "In the times we live
in, it is a sad fact that for those in need, fresh produce is not
always easy to come by. We are happy to be able to give back and
share the vegetables we grow to those in need this holiday
WP Rawl's mission to end hunger leads them to give back to other
organizations such as RAMP, the Rockin' Appalachian Mom Project,
Lexington Interfaith Community Services and Katie's Krops, for whom
the company sponsors an annual all-expenses paid summer camp.
