NORD donates $400 to local food pantry

Madison, WI , 2015-10-29

As the days grow shorter and the temperature continues to drop, we officially move into the “season of giving.” For us at NORD Drivesystems, that means reaching out to support our local community by giving the “Gift of Gobble” with a $400 donation to The River Food Pantry. This donation will supply turkeys at the pantry’s Thanksgiving feast, as well as help to distribute Thanksgiving turkeys to community members who shop at the pantry.

The River Food Pantry, located on the north side of Madison, has been in operation since 2006 and is Dane County’s busiest food pantry. The River supports more than 600 local families each week; offering free groceries, meals and clothing to anyone who comes looking for assistance. No one goes away hungry.

Visit www.RiverFoodPantry.org and donate $25 for every turkey you would like to see given to a family in our community. Please specify “TURKEY” in the designation box when you make the donation. You can also mail in your donation and write “TURKEY” on the memo line of your check.

If you have an actual turkey to donate, please drop it off during pantry hours, Monday-Friday 9:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. anytime the week of November 9-13. It will be served during The River’s annual Thanks-giving Feast on Friday, November 20 or it will be distributed to a deserving family who visits the pantry at one of the five pantry sessions during the week of November 16-20.
