Hood Container Community Service Event – York, PA

This week our HCC York local sales team, general manager, and customer service team joined Christian Aid Ministries in one of their service events.  Christian Aid Ministries is a customer of the HCC York plant and Jerry Dotoli, account executive for the team, coordinated and finalized this our participation in this event.  The event included bagging white rice from bulk to individual bags (to provide WIP) for the final packaging with a variety of products in our food parcel boxes to be distributed globally. It was humbling to see the level of participation from the community to support the efforts of their mission. It was great that our team members were able to participate and it gave everyone a sense of satisfaction having been part of it. The York Team packed four tons of rice that day.  The rice will then be sent into Christian Aid Ministries in large bulk bags and will be sent to Ukraine and Romania.
