Curry Supports Harvesters with ‘Bring Your Can to Work Day’
In April Curry Real Estate Services sponsored a ‘Bring Your Can to Work Day’ event to support Kansas City Harvesters. Curry employees who contributed five cans of food to the collection were able to wear jeans to work. Those who donated 10 cans were treated to lunch from Chipotle Mexican Grill.
Curry employees filled a 4-by-2-foot bin to overflowing with donations for Harvesters. The event helped raise awareness of the many people in the Kansas City area living with food insecurity and the vast amount of people served by Harvesters. As the only food bank in the region Harvesters provides food for 66,000 individuals every week.
Curry regularly supports Kansas City Harvesters. Each May Curry associates return to the Harvesters food pantry for a volunteer day.
“Harvesters is a charity that is near and dear to our hearts,” said Brynn McCan, vice president, executive administrator and human resources. “The food drive was a fun way for our associates to join together to make a real contribution to the hungry in our own community.”
