Clear Channel Earns 2012 Leadership Award
At the Food Bank's Annual Meeting in October, CEO Andrew Schiff presented the 2012 Leadership Award to Clear Channel Communications for extraordinary efforts to raise awareness regarding the issue of hunger in Rhode Island. In addition to a two-month public awareness campaign featuring Rhode Island celebrities, Clear Channel also conducted a holiday radiothon for the Food Bank in December 2011. A second radiothon is scheduled for December 6, 2012. Pictured here, Program Director Bill George (left) accepts the Leadership Award on behalf of the entire Clear Channel team.
Job Lot Delivers
It's not unusual to see the Job Lot truck pulling up to the Food Bank's warehouse with tens of thousands of pounds of food purchased with the help of customer contributions. Customers are invited to donate $1 at the register during the holidays, and Job Lot leverages those contributions with a matching gift of up to $100,000. Food Banks all across New England benefit from Job Lot's generosity. Between July 1, 2010 and June 30, 2011, Job Lot donated more than a half-million pounds of food to the Food Bank.
