Members of our NGL team volunteered during the annual NBC15 Share Your Holidays to eliminate hunger grand finale benefiting Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin at the Alliant Energy Center on Wednesday, December 11. NGL was also a Silver Sponsor with a donation of $25,000 which equaled 75,000 meals for Second Harvest Foodbank!
NGL volunteers answered phone calls taking donations, assembled boxes and packed food items for families, children and seniors facing hunger in southwestern Wisconsin.
Jerie O. and Sara W. volunteered to answer phone calls during the Grand Finale event. Each $1 donated equaled 3 meals for people in our community. They spoke with many generous individuals who donated anywhere from $5 to $400 and even $1,000 for Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin. They received the most calls during Mike’s Miracle Minute when donations were tripled. That means a $5 donation turned into 45 meals donated.
There were 14 members of the NGL team who worked hard to assemble cardboard boxes that were then packed with donated non-perishable food items. Each packaged box contained canned vegetables, fruits, pasta and macaroni and cheese. The boxes will be distributed throughout the 16 counties served by Second Harvest Foodbank of Southern Wisconsin.
