Lifetime Products and the Utah Food Bank
August 28, 2006
CLEARFIELD, UTAH – With the need for food donations very great during the summer months, the 1,600 Employees of Lifetime Products responded to the challenge and collected over 16,000 lbs. of food for the Utah Food Bank. The drive was the result of Lifetime challenging their employees to “Fill the Shed” during the month of August.
Lifetime had hoped to take the largest storage shed they manufacturer and fill it with food over a two week period in August. After the first day of the drive, the challenge quickly changed to “how many sheds can we fill.”
The food drive will benefit not only The Utah Food Bank, but also many Northern Utah support agencies. Catholic Community Services, the Family Connection Center, Ogden Area Community Action, The Salvation Army and God’s Pantry will all be receiving pallets of food collected by Lifetime.
Each organization will be picking up their pallets on Monday, August 28th between 1:30 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. at the Freeport Center, Bldg. D-7 in Clearfield. Richard Hendrickson, Lifetime’s president, will be manning the forklift that will be loading the food on each truck.
