AVI-SPL Employees Give Back This Holiday Season

One of our major focuses for 2012 has been giving back in the communities where we live and work. In keeping with that theme, our team members are volunteering their time this holiday season to give back to the less fortunate.

Just before Thanksgiving, more than 40 Tampa-based employees volunteered for half-day shifts in the Metropolitan Ministries Holiday Tent. Teams stocked shelves with canned food and dry goods, and helped local needy families choose which items they’d like for their Thanksgiving meal. Celebrating its 40th year, Metropolitan Ministries provided holiday meals for more than 2,200 families in November alone.

Our Houston team will be volunteering at the Houston Food Bank phone center in early December. Phone volunteers register clients by phone to receive holiday food boxes from the food bank. According to the website, tens of thousands of people in the greater Houston area receive access the food they need over the holidays through these volunteer efforts.

Employees across the country are also hosting food, clothing and toy drives for their local charities. Stay tuned to read more about these drives.
