Viking Pest Control hosts food drive to help families on Thanksgiving
BASKING RIDGE, NJ, 23 November 2021 / PRNewswire / – As part of Viking’s continued community engagement, Viking Pest Control recently launched a food drive to collect grocery donations for the Community Food Bank of New Jersey (CFBNJ), ensuring that local families in need can get food on the table in time for Thanksgiving.
CFBNJ acts as a distribution center, supplying food to a number of pantries, soup kitchens and shelters across the state. The food bank helps fight poverty and hunger, not only by providing food, but also by helping families in need find long-term solutions to their problems; it also focuses on the efficient disposal of food waste. These are some of the factors that influenced the choice of Viking Pest Control when finding a worthy cause to help this holiday season.
Last week, Viking Pest staff delivered four vehicles filled with 35 15-pound turkeys, along with canned food, potatoes, stuffing, gravy mixes, macaroni and cheese, rice and other dry products, at CFBNJ Hillside, New Jersey.
“After the food was weighed upon arrival at CFBNJ, we are delighted to announce that Viking Pest Control has donated 1,500 lbs of canned food and 525 lbs of frozen turkeys,” says the pest control professional, Eric Gunner. “As a staff member involved in this endeavor, it was gratifying to see so many of our Viking family participating; they made this donation possible and we are extremely grateful for the generosity of all who have contributed.”
Viking Pest Control has a proud history of giving back to the communities they serve and are thrilled to have been able to organize this food drive and ensure families can enjoy satisfying and nutritious meals this Thanksgiving.
