Many of us do not often take the time to think about how truly blessed we are. It is easy to think about our nice, comfortable homes, fancy smartwatches and often times we forget that there are others, especially children, who are less fortunate.
Here at A-Verdi, we believe in giving back to the community and being “part of many great things,” which includes our schools. We have begun our annual Fill the Container Food Drive, in conjunction with the Port Byron School District, a retired Port Byron faculty member, and varsity football coach Gino Alberici.
We welcome anyone who is interested in volunteering or donating to the drive to contact the Port Byron Community Food Pantry located at the United Methodist Church. No job is too small, no item is too insignificant. Our families and children are worth our time and no one should have to go bed hungry. If we can do our part by donating our time and our efforts, by giving something that will make a child’s life easier, then maybe we can put an end to hunger.
We are providing a 20’ ISO container in which we hope to collect much-needed food items, personal items, and cleaning supplies for families and children in the area who are in desperate need but do not always have the access to these resources. It’s just one more way, we at A-Verdi, want to use our storage containers to provide solutions.
The goal is to have that 8’ x 20’ filled to the brim with healthy food and essential household items for between now and Mother’s Day, May 8. Considering that a standard twenty-foot storage container is roughly the size of a one-car garage, this will be no small feat. However, we believe in this community, which is why we are headquartered here and we are no strangers to achieving wonderful things when faced with the task.
