Representatives from 7-Eleven stores recently visited House of Hope to deliver pizzas and launch a partnership with the agency.
Several 7-Eleven local and district managers brought 221 frozen pizzas to the House of Hope food pantry in Stuart on Aug. 7, 2015. This treat for food pantry clients was thanks to the contributions of 7-Eleven customers and employees in Martin County.
“This is just the beginning,” said Corzell White, a 7-Eleven field consultant. Local 7-Eleven stores are planning future Pizza Donation Days as well as volunteer activities with House of Hope.
“We want to use our resources to help feed the communities that support our businesses,” the company said in a presentation announcing the goals of the first Pizza Donation Day.
House of Hope touches more than 5,000 Martin County residents per month with services that include food, clothing, furniture, financial assistance, information & referral, and life-changing case management planning & guidance. The agency’s food pantries in Stuart, Hobe Sound, Jensen Beach and Indiantown provide a nutritionally balanced array of canned and dry goods, frozen meat, fresh produce, deli, dairy and bakery items.
